Working primarily in marbled paper.

The marbled patterns are the result of acrylic paints floated on a liquid, viscous solution known as size. Once the pattern has been made on the size it is transferred to an absorbent surface such as paper or fabric. It is often employed as a writing surface for calligraphy and as book covers or endpapers in bookbinding and many other paper arts. Part of the appeal of marbling is that each print is a unique monotype.

For me, marbling is a conversation between order and chaos, control and spontaneity. Order is not imposed on chaos nor is control meant to suppress spontaneity. There is a conversation between the ‘given’, the way the color moves and expands on the size, and ‘manipulation’ of the color with my tools. It is never the same twice.

I use the traditional patterns, dating from the 12th century up to the present, as a base for studying the linear possibilities and for color studies. These patterns form a base from which more spontaneous designs can emerge.

I enjoy the process of creating print art in many forms including marbling, solarplate etching and monoprint.
