Loops, natural cycles, and sequences are both the subject and the physical form of my artwork. For me, new work is always produced in multiples with an emphasis on variation, a practice intended to generate repeating units that can be joined or stand alone. Some series contain two large variations, others contain lots of small ones. Sometimes variation is manifested in the form of simple materials--from canvas to newsprint, from screen prints to thread. Created to imitate interconnected variations of nature such as dusk and dawn, the passing of the seasons, and the orbit of the planets, my work asks the question: how is a physical imprint like our experience of time?

MY PROCESS removes information from original sources and reconstructs them with new physical properties using screen printing. Combining elements of printmaking, painting, and photography, I use process as a force of nature, breaking down, reconstituting, and repeating pictures, topographies, and patterns from many points along the course of a history that is definitely personal and possibly infinite.
