My degrees are both in printmaking, but I have slowly moved from that medium, first to collage and mixed media and finally to photography.  

My photographs are visual poems, small stories that evoke universal emotions. My focus has been on self-portraits and layered images created digitally in Adobe Photoshop.  These are often combined with embroidered text and collage, adding a three-dimensional element to the page. The subjects I focus on include gender, aging, memory and loss.  

Using the processes and concepts I learned in printmaking and collage, my photographs are composed of multiple layers. I have always found the printing process to be mysterious and magical.  The excitement I felt when printing etchings and lithographs is similar to waiting for my photographic image to print.
