I am a painter and a printmaker. I paint memories of plants, places or personal items such as clothing and fabrics. Rather than rely on actual documentation of those things, I use manipulated photographs, distorted photocopies and intuitive and interpreted memories. I am attracted to bold shapes, dissected compositions and patterns. The balance between organic and order is a broad theme across my work and informs both structural and subjective decisions. I employ a vareity of techniques to create my work including painting, printmaking, collage, photography and the sculptural manipulation of the encaustic medium to create my work, using whatever materials and combinations best suit my ideas.
