I am a printmaker and primarily a monotype artist. Combining my love for the figure with a passion for drawing and color, I find printmaking to be a perfect form of expression. Making monotype prints provides the best combination of the gestural aspects of drawing and the emotional presence of color and pattern for me. Quality of line; how it can go from thick to thin and back again, how it can carry different weights, how edges can merge or push against each other are all excellently translated in this medium. Areas of color interacting with others convey different emotions and moods in this process in a rich and sensitive way.
