The Assignment

I love to listen. Portions of every day conversations and experiences include powerful statements that have universal and infinite meaning. My goal in creating these relief printed accordion books was to make these statements visible, tangible, and accessible. I limited my stories to just six words in order to edit the endless possibilities. In making them 4" x 4" I hope that they can be easily carried in your pocket!

Artist Statement

The process of mark-making through drawing, carving or etching is the most gratifying and direct way for me to translate an experience. I am interested in capturing and unraveling the dualities of everyday life in my art. With line, light and texture I strive to express the tension and search the spaces between transience and permanence, monotony and mysticism, movement and stillness, memory and reality, fear and comfort.
