A base of my work remains in a love of drawing, how drawing informs print as well as gesture and individual quality of line.  Printmaking, its histories, technologies and opportunities, continue to fascinate, inspire, and serve to define me as an artist.  Reminiscence is an underlying element, and this work is often an act of looking back.

I have been focusing on landscape imagery and specifically landscapes that have been altered by human activity.  It seems this is an attempt to stay connected to an outside while considering my place in that outside.  That several spheres intersect while watching natural events in our world demands my attention and provides focus when I’m in the studio. 

New work is using fractured shapes to make these landscapes – they feel like plates of the earth, sometimes ice floes and occasionally stone paths.
