My work as a visual artist intersects with my work as a writer. I am interested in the potential of elements that repeat and vary like measures in a poem. In lines and pattern, texture and text.
In my intaglio and relief prints, it is the marks created by the presence of ink or, just as often, by its absence that accumulate. Shapes repeat, cluster, align. The potential of repeating elements extends also to the matrices and prints themselves. Through layering, with variation on orientation, surface design attains dimension. Through doubling, one print above and the same below in mirror image, shapes shift into new forms.
