Artist's statement

Full Artist's statement

In a world economy, cultural changes are communicated quickly and can be originated anywhere on the globe. They can also move slowly and almost undetected to emerge as obvious. Both can be personally relevant. I believe in a pluralistic and inclusive process of object making.  My work contains residue from the visual environment such as world events, archeological, economic, scientific and social developments.

I have been using printmaking as a means for mark making because it has both an immediate and gradual means of developing image content. The print as a representation for leaving this evidence results in relationships with the process and final object.  Recent projects involve the relationship of the matrix (the plate used for printing) and the print. They are presented together to reveal the source and process of the work.
