In creating my collagraph prints, I utilize experiences available to me with a diverse array of materials and techniques to create a visual feast. I draw inspiration from the beauty of the Pacific, the rolling vineyards of France, the patches of tulip farms in Holland, from the intensity and colors of India, and the urban and suburban landscapes of California. These impressions are combined on my inked plates with handmade papers collected from Japan, France, India, Nepal and Thailand. I cut, scratch, adhere, mold and manipulate materials onto my plates without conventional limitations. By producing prints using everyday mundane materials, I am placing my work in an entirely new context, with the goal of challenging and changing the viewer’s perceptions. In an age of extremes, wealth and poverty, peace and discord, technology and ecology, my art strives for a universal landscape of harmony, blending cultural decorative motifs, color, texture and pattern.
