While on a 2007 Fulbright residency In Finland, I studied the rich heritage of Scandinavian design. This research led to further simplified forms. Natural objects are magnified and cropped until they become otherworldly. Like a 19th century naturalist, I often sketch and paint flora and fauna on site. Design considerations are evident through the implementation of graphic line, negative space, actual texture, and limited color. More recent trips to Japan have also had an important impact on my work. As a printmaker, I work in a variety of mediums including collagraphs, etching, mixed media prints, screenprints, and woodcut. Go to Special Projects and Animations to see work associated with these prints.
