Mixed Media

My work is the meeting place of printmaking, painting, and photography. I'm interested in the ever-changing landscape and sociological shifts in communities that were originally built around industry and the remnants of places that no longer exist. I photograph buildings that are in some way imperfect, or have a humble, almost forgotten quality. Through the repetition of the printed image, these structures create an implied narrative and a metaphor for the human condition. The process of making a print has always intrigued me because it is that which remains when the plate or screen is removed. In this way, I think of my creative process as a meditation on the transient nature of reality.
