Seeking Shelter

Early on I was intrigued with the idea of creating three dimensional drawings that viewers could see through and see from a number of perspectives. This interest in creating spaces persists in my two-dimensional work.
I’m still captivated by the beauty of a line and its ability to create the perception of space. In moving to print-making I’ve discovered its ability to incorporate color and texture as elements. These elements create or inform a mental space to inhabit.
In my prints the process of laying down a line or a color informs the next mark. They evolve as abstractions of my own perceptions, experiences and emotions.
