I enjoy working in a number of disciplines: printmaking, drawing and painting. Each medium presents different challenges, both technically and conceptually. These challenges allow me to approach and express my artistic vision in distinctive ways – related, yet different in scope.
Painting lets me develop a work over an extended period. Monotype printmaking demands that a piece be fully realized within a single artmaking session. Charcoal drawing asks me to examine a world without color.
Whatever the medium, all my work is process driven – each piece evolves as I react to the mark that went before. My art is usually nonobjective, yet firmly rooted in personal experience. I examine universal themes such as the human condition and the natural world. My longtime practice of figure drawing, and my home in a rural setting sometimes leads to unintentional references to the figure or landscape in my work.
