My works are one-of-a-kind, hand-pulled images known as monoprints--meaning that each image is produced by painting directly onto an already etched surface and printing the image by hand onto paper. This process is spontaneous and gives me the freedom to articulate my constant flow of images—some emerging slowly, some rushing almost too fast to catch. For me, the work is a transformational processing of my own experiences, including those as a clinical social worker. People seem to recognize something familiar in my imagery. I think it serves not only as a window into my unique world, but as a window into their world as well—one they may not have looked through before. My work is quite accessible and intimate. The complex layering of the prints may function as an allegorical space where people can make their own meaning.
