The art of printmaking attracts me because of the process. In my work, as much time can go into figuring out the approach to making the image and what printmaking medium will work, as goes into making the actual work itself. Whether I am scratching an image for a drypoint print, or carving a relief; it is through the act of taking the idea and developing it into a two-dimensional image–the process is what fascinates me and where I lose myself in time.
In my current work, I have been working primarily in relief. Botanical imagery still plays a strong roll in my work; sometimes as the primary subject and for the beauty of the botanicals alone, and sometimes I use plants and flowers as symbolism to put forward my ideas and thoughts. I enjoy the challenge of interpreting a concept and having the viewer wonder, “What does it mean?”
