In order to make a print I will work from my sketches I made of ordinary people in a variety of circumstances as well as drawings from a model or some experience in my life.  My prints are about feelings and states of mood, about dreams and expectations.  Often I express them through the female figure.  I play a roleof narrator and storyteller but I encourage the viewer to approach the piece with his or her unique experience or memory. 
I enjoy working with relief and intaglio technique as well as monotype.  Frequently I like to combine multiple styles and methods to create my own style. Lately I have explored the art of handmade artists’ books as a flexible medium with a wide range of artistic expression and a creative way how to utilize my prints.
