ARTIST STATEMENT
I cover and expose. I embed and dig out. The images emerge through a series of burning and layering wax, paper, and paint. My work is about the process as much as the finished piece—the mystery and beauty of decay—the surface that exposes itself to the surface underneath. My formal training in painting, printmaking, and jewerly design provide the context in which to express my art.
