"I am a self-taught print-maker/mixed media artist. I think that printmaking is an especially magical art form. I burnish most of my prints by hand. I am concerned for our environment therefore I use non-toxic inks and re-purpose materials and paper whenever possible. My idea of art is to find beauty and peacefulness. When I use text in my pieces, I want it to be uplifting and to create a positive message. I will occasionally take on certain issues facing our world today such as equal rights, fostering peace and promoting anti-racism."
