Frit Drawing on Glass

I respond to opportunities found in glass through the use of crushed glass powders and frits. I work with sifters, brushes, spatulas, and stencils. I combine and play off of existing and implied patterns found in nature and in the anatomical structures of the human form. A rich and varied play between positive and negative shapes are explored, whereby contrasting values, textures and patterns are woven together in an orchestration of subtle optical effects and nuances.

Drawing

My traditional drawings on paper combine imagery through composite manipulation and geometrical layering of unexpected patterns generated from my personal surroundings

Digital Imaging

My exploration of different themes oftentimes begins on the computer, using Adobe Photoshop for composite manipulation of imagery.

Printmaking

I have explored a variety of printmaking techniques that includes serigraphy, lithography, and intagio.
