Artist Statement

From the earliest point that I was making art seriously, my work has explored the human form. The organic and irregular lines of the body and the rich context around its depiction are interesting to me. My work focuses in and decontextualizes small sections of the whole to create an image that is referential to portions of the body, but may not reveal itself as something nameable. I am particularly interested in exploring sections that have creases, folds, and overlapping parts, which, to me, contain the richest detail.

Most recently I have been working in monotype printing, a combination of drawing and collage, and in tapestry weaving. While the visual language varies between these mediums, my subject matter and an exploration of color combinations unite them.
