Artist Statement
I’ve discovered through many years first as an abstract painter, then as a maker of monotypes, abstract, finally on impulse and seemingly overnight I found the most delightful of materials, linoleum, and the most unpredictable of processes, reductive linoleum printmaking., I’ve arrived at a place where knowing my process, I can take delightful risks. Creating art is all about making decisions for me. Decisions about the line, what to keep what to erase. The initial drawing can be excruciating to compose, challenging to resolve. If my drawing doesn’t delight me , I have little enthusiasm to go forward and make the materials and time commitment to oversee the completion of an edition. My everyday life circumstances inform my work and magically have proven to be a cathartic way of dealing with some of the difficulties life presents. I am always striving. I am always not doing until I’m doing.
