Statement

Inquiry and introspection about the interconnectedness of things drives my need to create. Processing thoughts, ideas and observations is the nature of my studio activity. Through the creation of images, symbols and visual narratives I explore my being and belongingness. This investigation helps me access my own truths and facilitates my understanding of the world in a broader context.

I am interested in visual language development including its construction, intentionality, ambiguity, contradictions, translation and interpretation. My works function as conscious maps, providing visual routes for evolving ideas, advancing understanding and constructing meaning. Each mark metaphorically documents a thought experience, comments on an inquiry or reveals a process of thinking. Meaning evolves and diversifies over time.

Print making processes (traditional and digital) serve the conceptual development of my images and satisfy my passion for working with materials. Completed works are realized as original prints and artists' books. As form, the book provides order, structure and sequence for communication and exchange. I use the efficiency of the codex for its fixed sequence and boundedness, and the boxed portfolio for its characteristics of containment and embodiment. Within these conceptual spaces, relationships emerge, narratives evolve and meanings manifest.
