I am intrigued by the rhythms of endless growth, bloom, death, and renewal that I observe in nature. With luminous oil-based inks I create one-of-a-kind prints on an etching press. With natural materials such as leaves and grasses I make marks that intertwine, twist, and layer themselves together to reflect nature’s pulse and energy.

I engage line as metaphor, creating marks that repeat and weave themselves together like fabric or raga or indicate movement for a swaying dance.

Like rivers, some of the lines can be traced to their origins, but another's end and beginning may never be found.

My focus is sometimes on directing and ordering line, but mostly I am intrigued by tangles, overlays, apparent disorder.
