About this collection of work:
I draw lines in a painterly way to create space by layering them, and to form patterns. My works are mixed media abstractions and often incorporate a print technique into the composition whereby I incise organic, geometric, or lately, animal forms into a foam plate. The stamping of it is one mark in a larger repertoire of moves in a work … which is really play. The challenge is to make all of the marks coalesce into a whole.
