Artist Statement

 

I make etchings, screen prints, and drawings about the conflict and connectivity between the natural and the built environment and our role in conservation. My prints contain collaged pieces of pattern, found papers and texts which are arranged beneath a layer of etching and aquatint. Some works are composed of a print repeated and reversed to grow a single motif into a pattern or ink drawings are made on fragments of paper which unite to create a whole.
