My work is non-representational. I chose to work abstractly because it allows me to focus on what I find most interesting – shapes and the spaces between them. I am concerned with the size and shape of the objects, the repetition and variation of patterns, the tension created by the nearness or distance among objects and the emotional impact of colors. My aim is to make art that is interesting from a distance and up close.
I have lived on both the east and west coasts of the US and abroad in Turkey and now live in the Sacramento area of California. These various environments have influenced the color and the content of my work.
I have an MFA in printmaking with a focus on woodcut, but recently have returned to printmaking, this time making monotypes.
I work in many media but am consistent in my interest in abstract patterns.
