The concepts of space and time are integral to my work, the use of these human constructs to explain and order the infinite. Defining one’s existence in an endless universe is both an intense need and an unattainable goal. With failure acknowledged and ensured, I seek to describe the indescribable concepts of forever and all through the inadequate tools of words, images, numbers and other symbols.
I am a printmaker, hand papermaker, and book artist. When combined, these disciplines allow me to explore physical and metaphorical place, the written word, mark making, repetition, rhythm, symbolism, and the power of visual narrative. My style is characterized through handwork, layered imagery, hybrid print techniques, and the inclusion of tactile elements. The processes used to create are visible in completed state, documenting time and the evolution of the work. Layers of meaning are created in translucent veils or metaphorically by juxtaposing disparate imagery and printmaking methods. Handmade paper provides a textured and patterned surface that may support or alter the definitions of printed images.
