Creating is a form of meditation that keeps me in a state of active reception to whatever is going on around me and happening inside of me as I work. I strive for a balance between the opposing natures of rational thought and the pure colors of emotional insight.
I use color to express moods and I am influenced by what I have seen on my morning walks or dreamt of the night before. My shapes are like thoughts and the colors are like emotions which overlap in a dance of layers during my creative play on the paper.
My primary medium is monotype printmaking, a hand-pulled, one of a kind work on paper. I also add drawing and chine colle at times. I cut my own stencils, which seem to grow into the shapes that they want to be. The organic, repeated, sinuous lines of Art Nouveau have influenced my work.
