My monotypes are about manipulating the familiar, playing with color and form, and shifting perspective. I often choose organic subjects, such as flowers and leaves, which invite me to work with their structure and design. I'm motivated by the unexpected and enjoy pushing the printing process to places where I am not quite certain of the outcome.
I am originally from New York. My father was an artist and his studio was always a place of inspiration and joy for me. He taught me that all of our designs originate in nature.
At school I studied textile design, interior design, drawing and painting. Under the guidance of local artist, Leslie Katz, I was introduced to the printmaking medium ten years ago and got hooked. Since then I have immersed myself in the process, specifically making Monotype prints, using an etching press. I have concentrated on a series of botanical and abstract prints.
