Artist’s Statement

My work deals with exploring the tangible presence of everyday objects in my immediate environment. My art is inspired by both my imagination and memory; places I visit, details of objects, landscapes, and even correspondence from friends. I create prints in a representational style and for the last few years I have focused my efforts on producing works using a technique called mezzotint. The mezzotint technique lends itself to the exploration of form and modulation using values of light and dark.
