My intaglio and relief prints have long been concerned with natural forms. Starting with observation, the final images are culled from memory, shaped by my own experiences and perspectives. I often work in series, finding it an excellent way to explore many possibilities concerning one theme. My attraction to printmaking comes from a fascination with the many ways I am able to play with images, determining the appropriate processes, juxtaposing shapes and colors, and changing the feel of my work by the aesthetic choices I make.
