I work in various media with a particular focus on printmaking and investigate mixing materials, the use of multiples, and drawing. I love the intended marks and layers of color and textures inherent in printmaking. Like the natural structures I use as subject matter, printmaking has a method and stages that are not always recognizable to the untrained eye. For me, the process has to build on itself to create the final image.Teaching is also very important to me, and I have been involved in arts education and public programming for 15 years. I have taught at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, the Fullerton Museum Center in Orange County, and the City of Los Angeles, Department of Recreation and Parks. I am currently the Senior Curator of Public Engagement at the Craft & Folk Art Museum in Los Angeles.
