Artist Statement
My work is inspired by the rugged beauty and fragility of nature. I am attracted to the dramatic play of light and shadow on rocky cliffs, the swirling patterns of rushing waterfalls and the translucent colors at the water’s edge. I frequently hike with my sketchbook so that I can draw a particular view. In my studio, I am influenced by the sensitivity and directness of Japanese and Chinese paintings as I create new pieces from my nature studies. My monotypes feature layers of translucent color, elusive light on surfaces, and undulating lines. They reveal my strong interest in the variety of changing textures and patterns in nature. I am constantly trying new techniques and inks to discover more ways of expressing myself through printmaking. Traveling to Taiwan, I observed stirring views of the gorges in Taroko National Park, the cliff faces revealing the geologic forces that shaped them. I have been working on monotypes that depict the silvery boulders and the lush green foliage.
