Statement

I am a mixed media artist working mainly in printmaking but I also work in ceramics, three-dimensional paper & plastics sculpture, works on paper and canvas. I use various mediums including intaglio, drawing, painting, stencils, collographs, metal leaf, thread and found objects to form a visual narrative that expresses my values. My work often addresses environmental issues,  raising awareness and is informed by my academic history focused on environmental rights. Currently, I am working on a body of work titled Plastic Fossils but I also explore other topics.
