The love affair with ink, paper and press began when she pulled the first impression. She is influenced by quilts, carpets, stone inlays, mosaics, and the geometry found in past and present cultures. Common in her work is a reliance upon units of structure, repetition, and replication.
“For me there needs to be an element of surprise and discovery as I respond to the ink and carved blocks. The work takes on it’s own personality and rhythm letting me know where it needs to go, and I attempt to get it there.”
