I began exploring Photoshop and photography in1994. In 2002 I began experimenting with polymer clay and encaustic wax, and after refurbishing my grandmother's printing press, I became interested in printmaking. My artistic journey has taken me through several mediums, currently focusing on gelatin monoprinting with acrylics, encaustic wax, digital imagery, and mobile photography with digital manipulation.
My inspiration comes from ancient civilizations, faces, geology, and astronomy, and through these mediums I explores my love for abstract presentation, color, texture and dimension.
In 2012-2013 I had to give up my art studio (a guest room in our house) in order to accommodate family. Since I was limited for that year to digital only, I began experimenting with creating digital works on the iPad. I love working this way, and it is entirely portable with no mess to clean up afterwards.
