We all have the sky in common. Clouds are images that are simple and universal, signifying hope and connectivity. This series of watercolor paintings, printed with hand set messages in hot foil,  began during quarantine in May 2020 and is ongoing.


In chalk pastel on paper, I create urban landscapes against tumultuous skies, depicting changing light and the ephemeral nature of attempting to capture a moment. 



The process of hand papermaking is fluid and imperfect, and in my process I use watermarking as a method to reveal and conceal text in narrative palimpsests. 


Through the Glass, Towards Me: A Distillation 

Time based ephemeral sculpture, video projection, sound installation, artist's book. Part of a body of work exploring Memento Mori, ornament and monument, and the corporeal experience of time. 


I believe in printing with vintage type, and celebrating the process and context of letterpress printing as an imperfect, handmade medium that allows a message to  be seen, felt, and experienced. 


Interdisciplinary sculptural work connected to an exploration of my series Ornament/Monument, marrying interests in drawing, artists books, and site specificity. 


Printmaking works on paper founded in traditional practices of intaglio, relief, serigraph, and stone lithography.
