I build up layers and images that have distance from their original material and technique, allowing atmosphere to take precedence and direct the visual conversation.

As a printmaker my focus is to push the boundaries between printing and drawing - intersecting drawing materials and methods with the vast system of resists, screens and hidden reversals inherent in printmaking. At this crossing point, I build up layers and images that have distance from their original material and technique, allowing atmosphere to take precedence and direct the visual conversation. Drawn line patterns and rows of pochoir printed dots - forming photographic imagery, are laid in colored pastel over the surface of wax creating emotive landscapes that play with visual perception, place, time and fictitious vantages.
