hand-colored block print; 10×10″, image 6×6″

“As an artist, I seek to keep an open eye and a porous response to current cultural stresses. I push boundaries with bold graphics and patterns of marks. My recent prints are inspired by the monumental nature of rocky landscapes. The work becomes a celebration of the elemental nature of debris prefabricated into a printing plate. As each image emerges, I explore my place in the landscape, a terrain of unfolding light.”
