My recent work often combines the use of text and calligraphic marks with a variety of printmaking techniques to evoke time and place. I incorporate writing in the form of symbolic text , either invented or derived from a variety of alphabets. The text functions as image rather than as readable meaning.
I am hoping to communicate a sense of history and location along with the passage of time. I am often inspired by my travels and by observation of nature and architecture. New pieces are mixed media monotypes or monoprints, which might incorporate block printing, etching, chine colle or gum printing into the monotype process.
