My inspiration comes from my interest in giving new meaning to everyday, used objects and materials, and making the common and discarded, uncommon and precious.
I like to combine various print media such as: monotype, screen-printing, linocut, and cyanotype; using and reusing materials such as paper, wire, and fiber, – in order to create my mixed media art.
I have always thought of my work as improvisation, a matter of responding to what I have just created with the materials.
My approach to making art is as a gradual process, elements arising organically out of their interactions with each other, sometimes leaving traces even when they are covered by later additions.
I experiment with different materials, substances, and techniques, trying to push the limits, in order to open to the viewer to explore and become emotionally engaged with the art.
