Since I work in several mediums, color photography, woodcut and monotype prints, I tend to concentrate on the one medium for a stretch of time. Urban parks, natural phenomena like eclipses and lightning, plants close-up and autobiographic icons are sources of my imagery. Lately, I've been making interrelated small prints that become components of a larger art piece. Working with layers of color I can create transparency and richness in the art pieces and will often use patterning to enrich the surfaces.

Currently, I am designing woodcut images for a book collaboration on the Winds of Sardinia. Continuing a series of experimental woodcuts and monotype combinations based on abstracted flower forms, I sort through the recent color photographs taken in southern France and in Sardinia.
