Through my work, I explore the gulf between two experiences of the world; one presented daily to the senses, the other an unseen collection of belief, imagination, and memory. I position these experiences together not to resolve them, but to consider the relationship between them. I seek to make visible the invisible; the spaces between objects and events, and our awkwardness in describing them, are the subtext of my work.

My prints and drawings reference the physical world through plant forms, animal forms, and the figure. Manipulated text, language, and translation, suggest the complexities of human thought and behavior. Sometimes lyrical and sometimes abrupt, the work ranges from diagrammatic line drawings to elaborate, decorative elements. I cut apart and recombine source images, abstracting them through simplification, repetition, and layering. Layers may contradict each other or work together, linking the internal and external worlds.

Repetition is at the heart of printmaking, but my attraction to the multiple comes from the possibility of infinite variation as much as infinite repeatability. Forms recur in my work suggesting narrative or, simply, movement through time. This recurrence also shows how an image changes as it is transposed into different media. I am more concerned with similarity than with sameness, and a varied family of related images often replaces the edition in my studio practice.
