I dabble in a little of everything, but when it comes down to it, I am most passionate about printmaking. I'm interested in textures and layers and enjoy combining printmaking techniques to achieve end results. My favorite part of printmaking is creating the matrix--I love trying to figure out how the image in my mind's eye can be created in print. Collagraphs are my favorite technique. Once I get started building a plate, I have a hard time walking away from my studio for necessities like food and sleep. It's like putting together a puzzle--it's very hard to step away when the pieces just seem to be fitting!
My work is a reflection of my life and interests. I'm a mother of two
and my experience as a parent is a common theme. I also have a thing for
Central Texas' nastiest bird--the grackle, and they pop up everywhere.
I've developed an affinity for mathematical and scientific subject
matters as a by-product of my obsession with Nikola Tesla. One thing is
for sure, my work is either a hand pulled print, or a collage using my
hand pulled prints.
