"Materials and their collaboration with photography interests me a great deal and the qualities of light, transparency and materiality are consistent aspects unifying the images from both series. In this recent body of work, Botanica, I am continuing to explore “photograms” in the photographic darkroom. The resulting black and white photo images are combined as multiple images, scanned and printed as digital pigment prints.".

“Having grown up outside of the city, surrounded by trees and farmland, my art is influenced by my life on the West Coast, often featuring the animals and nature that surround me.
Rooted in the belief that art can be both functional and aesthetic, my work explores a range of mediums—from linocut and screen-printed stationary and crafted pillows to limited edition hand pulled prints and original paintings."

“I favour monoprints over multiples. Each piece is usually printed on Japanese Washi or Korean Hanji that is subsequently glued to a board, canvas or heavier printmaking paper. The thinness of these papers belies their strength, enhancing creative potential enormously, since portions of any plate can be printed on the washi and glued onto any other substrate leaving no discernible line. It also enables me to use portions of woodcut or digital imagery that I have done in the past and incorporate them into new work with a small amount of glue creating my mixed media mono prints."
