It is never easy to live a busy life and still have the time to create masterful works of art. Those who achieve this effort should get a medal or at least a giant chocolate donut every morning until life gets easier. This is my life in a donut box. I am ready for an artistic revolution! I am ready to put art on the top of my list and see my artworks come to life with a new vibrancy! Check-Mate! I'm there!
I have a fascination with nature and I love collecting seeds, bones, and oddities I find in the streets. These often inspire ideas along with images I dream. The evolution of those ideas through drawing and the solar intaglio printmaking process is challenging but exciting. Imagination plays a big part in the formation of images and I find it satisfying when it all comes together.
I'm fascinated with the printmaking process, especially the delightful surprises that come the first time a new plate is pulled. I gravitate towards the textural effects of collagraphs finding platemaking is only limited by one‚€ôs imagination. My work has been exhibited throughout the US but primarily in Texas, with a second solo show on the books for Chicago in 2015.
The deadline for this event (7/17/2008) has passed.
