For the last five years I’ve worked in linocut, starting out small in the 9” x 12” size and increasing to 18” x 24”.  In the last year, I’ve hand colored some of my prints, using watercolor.  I’ve also stated painting again on paper.

I’ve always been drawn to a symbolized use of nature.  Artists such as Georgia O’Keefe and Arthur Dove continue to inspire me.  Certain aspects of nature strike a chord in me and I feel drawn to work with that imagery.  Often I work in series and the work often becomes more abstract as I work with it.  My imagery sometimes takes on an anthropomorphic quality.
