I'm currently exploring monoprinted collage. I enjoy working with saturated colors and organic variations introduced through monoprinting. Shapes are cut out and scanned so that I can nail down the composition in Photoshop, or create multiple variations on a theme. I'm having fun marrying art and design to form hybrid creations.
I've also started a series of paintings of Lake Superior– a special place of healing and peace for me. I first select a block of wood with natural grain patterns that speak to a sense of water and sky. I then use the plein-air experience to direct the mixing of color that captures the essence of the day. The tights bands of color that form on the edges of the blocks remind me of the agates we enjoy searching for on the beaches.
