I love trying new things. I love buying the supplies to try new things. However, sometimes, those things end up sitting for longer than I care to mention. I have a large Gelli plate that I finally used to print these pieces of silk. I used Akua ink to print. I was expecting it to take forever to dry but that has not been the case. I printed on silk and like that the ink has not changed the hand of the silk. The push to try this was a printmaking show coming in a few weeks. My approach to printmaking is fast and loose so the chances of being selected by a purist juror is pretty slim. Nevertheless, it got me experimenting with my 'new' supplies.

As a self-taught artist, I have developed a practice of experimenting with my own ideas, which seem boundless. Curiosity and research continually drive me daily. For over 20 years I have taken an explorative approach towards art making. My optimistic approach to life is represented in my art as I find beauty in even the most difficult circumstances. This beautiful, imperfect life I live is meant to be shared through my creativity, resourcefulness and curiosity. I hope to influence my audience with joy.
