My monoprints share the loose layering of colors of my paintings. The colors are brought from the plates to the paper surface on the press. When I draw, I bring my affection for calligraphy to my marks. I am challenged to push beyond exacting pencil and ink design drawings by using brushes, inks, colored pencils, and watercolor crayons. I am eager to learn about new techniques and materials, and find delight and inspiration in these explorations.
