Having grown up in a creative family my affinity for drawing and painting was encouraged as a child. It wasn't until attending UCSC that I received my first official art instruction as a member of the Scientific Illustration program during my last year at the university. Years after graduation I began taking printmaking course offered at our lcoal community Cabrillo College in the evenings. From the first night class I was hooked – I continued to learn traditional etching methods over three years with several instructos including Paul Roehl, Howard Ikemoto and Julie Connell.
In my practice I have stepped away from the traditional acids, metal plates and solvents that are found in many printmaking studios. By using non-toxic materials and printing methods I've established a safe space to teach and create. Located in the middle of a garden my studio is equipped with a Griffin IV press, large work surfaces and abundant natural light.
I enjoy creating series of monoprints and mixed media pieces with a focus on the play of color, transparency and repeating abstract botanical forms. Shadows and ghost images support pigment-rich shapes creating dynamic surfaces in my most recent series including Indigo, Blush, and Argent. My collection is well archived and constantly growing. Each October I participate in Santa Cruz Open Studios where visitors experience artist work spaces, watch art demonstrations, view and purchase original art.
