Statement

The coexistence of nature and the urban environment is my inspiration. From organic shapes, textures and patterns found in nature contrast to the hard-edge forms and visual language in a man-made environment. Integrating these opposites, no matter how subtle adds intrigue. 

What excites me about printmaking and specifically collagraphs are the endless variety that can be achieved through inking. I also use a print as an underlying image to build upon. Mixed media printmaking opens greater possibilities that suits my artistic vision and natural way of working.
