White Patch Sode (2014)
monoprint and mixed media collage
12 x 9 in.

“My work investigates symbolic forms and shapes. Icons and totems with personal significance are symbolized in this private world. I love making images with plant, animal, kimono and deconstructed kite forms and have found that monoprint and mixed media collage are the most authentic and subjective tools to express my voice. For me Art is about persistence, a life study and discipline. It is part of my life. If you pursue it a lot or a little at any one time makes no difference…just return to it again and again. Let the presence of touch back into your life and embrace the new with reference to all that you have learned.”
