“My medium is relief printmaking, experimental mono-printing techniques and collage. I am fascinated by patterns—particularly in my garden and under the microscope (or what I imagine to be under the microscope). I create new pieces by pulling apart the patterns I observe and re-forming them into new designs. Carving them into linoleum wood, I produce a vocabulary of images that can be printed and reprinted in different colors and combinations. My goal is to weave together images that express the vitality of growth and decay in a physical and spiritual world.
The Grow/Tiffany series, originally adhered directly to a wall of Bromfield Gallery in Boston, MA, comes from a reimagining of the lifecycle of my garden.”
