Artist Statement

I am interested in the power of organic shapes and randomness to suggest imagery.

I usually create a great number of variations before I find something that is worth developing further, while still attempting to maintain the random and chance effects of experimentation.

I like the idea of leaving "room in my work" for viewers to create alternative meanings.

My recent work combines traditional media (acrylic monoprints) with digital manipulation to produce a more "painterly" look.

Although abstraction is my primary interest, I also like to use original photographs in images that are more "representational".

To complete the digital process, I have learned how to make my own prints with archival inks and papers.
