"#06" Ink on paper abstract artwork in yellow and blue circles

About

I grew up in the United States and completed a BA in literature in Santa Barbara, CA, an MA in literature in Sydney, Australia, and a three-year printmaking diploma in London, where I currently live with my husband and two sons. I have also lived in Ecuador, where I taught modern literature and creative writing, and in France, where I contributed articles on art to Surface magazine. I am fascinated by the way patterns are repeated in both nature and urban landscapes and find inspiration in everything from maps, train tracks and aerial photographs to stones, moss, bark, lily pads and microscopic organisms. The time required to finish one of my monotypes varies, but often takes months. I usually start by rolling a color all over a smooth Plexiglas plate and then work reductively, creating the image by removing ink, sometimes by masking sections, but mainly with turpentine, using everything from spatulas, droppers and paintbrushes to muslin, tissue and cotton swabs. Now and then I take an additive approach and start on a clean plate or use a ghost image (a print made with the faint, left-over ink from a used plate). I like a layered effect and often put a print through the press anywhere from three to ten times, sometimes finishing a composition with collaged pieces or gouache paint. My mixed media pieces also have a link to printmaking. Made from multiple layers of glue, gesso, carborundum, wool, cheesecloth and ink on board, they are similar in technique to a collagraph, but instead of printing additions from them, they are left as original pieces.
