Materials, process and manipulation…
These three elements are the foundation of my work as a printmaker and encaustic painter. The rich black lines, textures and tactile responses of the printmaking process have inspired me since I first discovered printmaking in college. I found that I could experiment, playing with the materials and challenging myself in ways that other art mediums did not offer me.
I approach both printmaking and encaustics in a similar manner. Imagery is created through the development of many layers in an additive and subtractive way. I find the possibilities for both mediums are endless. I love the often-unexpected outcomes in each and working them into the final image.
I am inspired by nature – its organic lines, shapes, forms and movements.
Atmospheric changes in color and light and the resulting patterns and shadows they create are a rich source of subject matter for me.
