My approach to creating is experimental and intuitive leading to unpredictable outcomes. Manipulating images digitally enables me to play with colors, shapes and textures, which in turn allows me to engage the viewer with the final results.
My concern for finding a healthier approach to making art has led me to a variety of alternative printmaking methods. At present I have been exploring the photopolymer gravure process which I was first introduced to at the Chicago Printmakers Collaborative. I’m especially excited about printing multiple colors using color separations using polyester plate lithography process.
My passion for technical processes provides a continuous expansion of visual imagery. For the past year I have been drawn to explore the city, people and nature. My desire is that my prints will evoke a new way of viewing the world and be savored by those who choose to enjoy my work
