Love of paper, ink, and simple machines makes printmaking a natural choice for much of my work. The unexpected surprises revealed by printing and layering images are important and sustaining elements in the creation of works on paper, but I feel free to draw, paint, and collage as well. The images submitted for your review combine monotype, drypoint, lithography, silkscreen, and more direct approaches. The work is inspired by the watery world surrounding my studio, a fascination with wildlife, landscape, textures, and time of day. Narration is an important element in the work. Sometimes inanimate objects take on the roll of character. The titles are meant to give a clue but not to dictate interpretation.
