Artist Statement

I am a printmaker. I enjoy technical processes, complicated planning and meditative repetitiveness found in the media. I like to work on projects that are challenging in some form. My subject matter has been entrenched in concepts developed around various bird species. Through reflection and research I move work on projects that focus mainly on birds, I feel that I have really developed an understanding of their form. Birds have been rendered for centuries through mythology, religion and documentation. I see their resilience and strength but acknowledge their delicacy. I enjoy the symbolism, texture and patterns I can make with printing birds. I see their personalities show through color and gesture. I find it stimulating to understand their feathers and forms through the interpretation of woodcuts and engravings.
