Each work of mine is a means to connect with humanness in its simplest form. Starting first from a gestural line, I approach each piece much like that of a weaver or beadworker with close connection to material.

I meditate with line and apply laborious printmaking techniques and sometimes fill in with repetitious pattern, making the detail in my work very physical. I feel connected to historical works of ornament, which wield a bold graphic presence from a distance and a close connection to the hand by close review. The symbiosis of fluidity and retarint are the pillars of the forms I produce. There is an austere quality to my work, but truthfully I know a piece is successful when I can find a glimmer of laughter somewhere within it.
