I am an interdisciplinary artist working mainly in printmaking but also in ceramics, three-dimensional paper & plastics sculpture, works on paper and canvas. I use various mediums including intaglio, drawing, painting, stencils, collagraphs, metal leaf, thread and found objects. I work with different styles concurrently including representational and abstract forms to cultivate a visual narrative that expresses my values and internal dialogues. My work often addresses natural forms and 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 regarding our single use plastic problem but I also explore other topics.
