ARTIST’S STATEMENT

I’ve been an exhibiting artist since my first linoleum block print was shown in a statewide exhibition when I was in the 6th grade. Over the decades I’ve worked in many mediums — printmaking, photography, mixed media, and water color. Currently I’ve returned to my college printmaking roots, and am working in clay monoprints.

What I love about using leather-hard clay as a printmaking matrix is that I can add layer upon layer of colored pigments and textures, then I get only one chance to make one print! There’s magic and serendipity in this type of artwork, and that delights me, my collectors, and viewers.
