“Texture and mark making are central components of my work. The painterly gesture is a persistent element, along with the anemic writing that represents the universal urge to mark one’s territory. The empty space is as important to me as the space enlivened with marks. In a test of ideas and form. I move back and forth between painting and printmaking, which results in ongoing challenge and discovery as each medium informs the other.”
