"I am a graduate of the Boston Museum School, where I first started monoprinting as a painter. I have shown my work in galleries and museums in Boston, across New England, and New York City. I enjoy teaching creative processes to artists interested in experiencing new ways of approaching printmaking. My work as a Rosen Method Bodywork practitioner gives me an additional way of developing awareness and teaching creative expression.
As a teenager growing up near the Cleveland Museum of Fine Art, I absorbed the color, space, and forms from the Museum's deep and wide Asian Art Collection. What I am looking for in this series of work is a feeling that emerges from paying attention to landscape, rivers, passages, natural forms, and sky. Making monotypes encourages discovery and responsiveness, always allowing the unwilled to unfold. I am inspired by the language of the body, and I am interested in bringing personal experiences into poetic form. The nature of monoprinting and this particular scroll format, supports my interest in a quality of expansiveness found in nature and within ourselves."
