The power of visual language has always intrigued me. I am interested in exposing the connections and struggles between self, society, and nature, inviting the viewer to start a conversation.


I have a special romance with monotype printmaking. When painting my subject, uncovering the hidden is what it’s all about. The monotype technique allows me to expose what my subject is willing to reveal amid the abstract. I create with a mix of bold, quiet, and gestural strokes in my creative process. The movement and emotion of every mark is recorded onto the plate, documenting the added, removed and altered. The energy in this private space is enlightening and addicting.
