A little bit about me:
I am an artist working in the small coastal town of Chesapeake, VA. I have a small, but mighty studio in my home that I share with my husband, two year old son, and furry helper. I love creating works on paper; I find working on paper to be one of the most rewarding, yet unforgiving, materials.

I love creating works on paper; I find working on paper to be one of the most rewarding, yet unforgiving, materials.

I use drawing, various types of printmaking, and also do some painting into my mixed media works.

About my art:
I am interested in how people communicate: effectively and ineffectively. Communication is the one thing that binds us all together, the one common thread that must continue. Without communication what else do we have? When making work I am interested in the certain moments that communication or lack of communication occur and interpreting those moments through mark. What interests me most is when the marks that emerge on the page overlap and meld with the marks below or on top and create their own type of mark, something that I had not planned. My work is a mix of intuitive and deliberate mark making paired with the spontaneity that occurs when these marks overlap.
