My printmaking and painting is always in process, often unveiling itself to me in fits and starts. However, the constant stream running through my artwork is the connection to the natural world with its infinite and subtle variety of line, color and pattern. Collagraph printmaking is especially meaningful as it combines collage with the physical process of inking, rubbing and finally pulling the print. My love of the art process is best described by author, Willa Cather
…”the irregular and intimate quality of things made entirely by human hands.”
It is that intimate quality I hope to convey through my work that becomes a conduit for the unspoken conversation between artist and viewer.
