The quote says it all.
The inspiration behind my artwork comes from the places I’ve been, the things I’ve seen, and the cultures and people I’ve met along the way. I want to pay respect to how travel and exploration impacts lives. The images represented in my artwork portrays and reveals things that embody these destinations big and small, near and far. My artwork is not only for those who have been there, but also for those who are inspired by the subject matter. I want my artwork to draw you in, to force you to take a second look. Travel connects us all and by using geometrical shapes, patterns, and design, I'm able to recreate graphically how travel links us together.
I create modern fine art intaglio prints utilizing polymer etching plates, where imagery within geometric shapes are comprised of manipulated photography of patterns, designs and figures from around the world. Various colored inks are applied to the plates using a technique called à la poupée. In addition to the inked plates, hand-cut rice paper shapes are placed on the plates during the printing process in a printmaking process called chine collé. Other printmaking techniques used include screen printing and woodblock printing.
