"Art is the way I explore and understand the world. Consideration in my art is of things below the surface, things submerged. I am interested in exploring compulsions behind manifested action—the potentials that reside behind and drive the eruption of emotions, thoughts, or deeds. I use the application of paper and pigment, embossed and imbedded elements, as my art medium to both visually hide and reveal, conceal and uncover, lurk and flush out core motivations. Monotype is a printmaking process in which a single, unique print is created through direct transfer on an etching/printmaking press. Drawing, mirror-writing, and image transfers are used for expressive purposes. Chine coll (pasted paper) is also used."
