My printmaking reflects my impressions of the natural landscapes surrounding my home and studio. Using intricate cutting and applied textures to my collagraph plates allows me to explore the structures and forms of native wildflowers and wildlife; isolating key elements and sections of the cycle of the seasons or the character of a familiar animal or bird. The addition of drypoint work onto the plates further enhances my studies of these forms using the drawn line directly on the printing plate.
