Artist Statement:

Pattern Prints is an ongoing series of lino relief prints that originated from sketchbook drawings. The images arose from an amalgam of visual interests, including furrowed bark, branch structure, architectural forms, the movement of water, and even those swooping haircuts in 1950s and ’60s illustrated barbershop posters. Drawing can be spontaneous and impulsive, whereas the printmaking process requires a more deliberate practice—carving and making multiple, layered impressions on an etching press. I wanted to arrive at forms that are somehow recognized, but impossible to name. I’m also including a handful of photographs focusing on architectural pattern and color. My work encompasses drawing, photography, and painting.
