    RECENT SHOWS

    My prints experiment with overlapping organic and linear layers that inform one another and explore the dynamic beauty of relationship. I most enjoy working on a series of monoprints or on variable editions, encouraging happy accidents. Additionally I appreciate building the textures of collagraph prints by using found objects and inking one plate with both intaglio and relief techniques. Abstracting my surrounding landscape is a primary focus, particularly the Niagara Escarpment.

    I am a fine art printmaker, active in Door County WI and the Chicago Loop. The many confinements of these past many months pushed me to expand my boundaries. I was delighted to exhibit a relief print in the Awagami International Miniature Print Exhibition fall 2021. All prints in this exhibition were presented on Japanese washi paper, recently designated a UNESCO intangible cultural heritage craft. I have studied a wide variety of printmaking and encaustic techniques with many artists in an effort to hone my own painterly style. My work has been featured in several juried shows in the Chicago area including the Her Voice Shows at Expressions Graphics from 2017 - 2021 and at the Oak Park Library Art Gallery in January 2016. My collagraph monoprint “Bert” was selected for the Purchase Award from the 53rd Annual Juried Exhibit at The Hardy Gallery in 2015.
