Currently exploring the fine art of monotype & the spontaneous yet corrosive properties of rust.

“There are things I can do with mono-type printing, that I could never recreate with painting or drawing. The negative and positive effects I obtain with my hand-cut stencils aren’t possible with direct application. What draws me to printmaking are the ephemeral surprises and chance discoveries I find when lifting paper from plate. My prints compose me as much as I compose them.”

…The passage of time is an elemental concept in my newer work that is represented by movement through dark layers that obscure previously hidden marks into the open spaces from which they evolve.
