Artist Statement 

I have always been interested in people. Not only am I fascinated by how we live and interact, but I am also intrigued by what makes us up. Trillions of living things - cells - work together to make us who we are. The complexity of humans and human nature drive my artwork. I explore my interests in anatomy and biology through both portraiture and representations of microbiological forms. I enjoy treating the components of the body as objects and landscapes. One of my preferred media is printmaking, especially reduction prints carved from linoleum blocks. I am drawn to variable editions specifically as they allow me to focus on creating a core image, but then they give me the freedom to experiment with different colors and textures in each print. The technical nature of printmaking allows me to combine my love for scientific processes and methods with my passion for creating art.
