"I explore aquatint, collagraph, and etching for my art not because of the inherent multiple images possible, but primarily because I find the process and the graphic qualities of the marks and values most effective for my expressive purposes.
Woven throughout, irregular shapes conjure organic forms that resemble animal skins with shamanistic implications. Faces and anthropomorphic figures hint at social concerns, yet they do not completely address political situations as much as personal and spiritual associations, often with ambiguous metaphors. The result is a dynamic image that changes with the viewers' distance, drawing them in to reveal surprises, emotional power, and subtly concealed content."
