Artist Statement

I attempt to recreate the beauty of the human trace; Its creation and deterioration over time and the layers of history reflective of these cycles. In the works I use various mono printing techniques, gouache, and collage. The mixed media layers are then combined with dry-point etchings referencing site specific graffiti, textiles, nature, architectural elements, and sculpture. Eventually each piece develops to express the fleeting beauty of the past, which we both destroy and treasure.
