Growing up in a small Appalachian Ohio town has strongly influenced my work. My inky, rich monotypes have a visual depth and pictorial strength that belie size. The unique technique and handling of media evoke an invitation into scenes that combine memory and presence. Over the years my work has become more complex with additional elements of scraffito, hand painting and collage.
I studied art at The Ohio State University and the Columbus College of Art and Design. Along with showing in many regional venues, recent national recognition includes selection into the Butler Institute of American Art Midyear National Juried Exhibition (2015, 2016, 2018 & 2019) as well as the Monotype Guild of New England Nation Juried Exhibition in 2018.
