"Art" doesn't literally speak, but instead it can be "a way" of communicating with color, texture, sound and shape. In my artwork, I am careful to remember movement, joy, and mystery, to make viewers feel happy and think about the meaning of my art.  I think that expressing how you enjoyed creating is one of the biggest keys to making artwork successful.Each technique of Printmaking has its own distinct character:Silkscreen is a great technique for detailed graphic lines.Etching techniques make pen-drawing prints and different shades or tones.Lithography is a perfect technique to print exactly how you draw.Monotype is a fun technique to create unique prints with brush strokes.My goal is to create prints that have many unique "flavors" within each edition, so viewers can choose the style that fits their tastes.
