Artist Statement

My most recent pieces are some from a series that reflect my interest in Chinese writing (calligraphy). Of special interest is the use of color over the surface, the experiences of mark making, of fusing marks with content, and of having the unexpected happening. I consider my artwork to be an experimental language. The constructions are three-dimensional wall pieces created from monotypes, relief prints and collage, which are then mounted on museum board and Gatorboard.
