I am a printmaker and mixed-media artist. My current work involves a complex process that integrates encaustic monotypes with mixed media.
I practice a form of “asemic writing” which is a kind of invented calligraphy. My work features seeming-symbols that evoke real letters and real scientific equations. These seeming-symbols are gestural abstractions that invite the viewer to project a variety of meanings into the work. I mimic the abstract symbols of physics to artistically explore the nature of shape and placement in space.
