My background as a photographer and printmaker has allowed me to cultivate a powerful relationship with various forms of paper, and I appreciate the fine qualities that paper can express.

Paper can be a remarkably resilient and delicate material. Starting with a digital drawing, I apply monotype inks to plexiglass to add expressive line drawings to the image. A roller with thinned acrylic paint adds further texture to the composition. Thin lines applied as a last technique add form and dimension to the artwork.

In my artwork, I like to explore depth and layers as they relate to longevity and second chances in life, peeling back the paper to see deeper levels by uncovering forgotten colors, shapes, and lines.

My goals are to keep refining my approach. I want to develop my ideas through studio work and my deep reservoir of source materials. I enjoy writing about my work and other artistic endeavors on my blog and other social media platforms. Finally, I plan to increase my visibility through shows and online sales.
