My work is often inspired by concepts that are, at present, not mainstream thinking. The field of energy healing and how frequency, vibration and intent have an ability to heal us inspirates my artwork today.
Mono prints are often the vehicle I use to express my conceptual work. Translucent layering, unique textures from hand rubbing ink onto paper, overlying text and figurative imagery are brought together to make an intriguing statement.
My paintings and relief prints are often inspired by native communities of the past, stories shared by my mother of rural Nicaragua in the 1940's, farmer's markets, design of the 1950's and swimming in the offshore waters of Hawaii.
I'm a San Francisco native whose parents worked in creative fields. After graduating from CCA in Oakland, I enjoyed many years working as a graphic artist before turning my attention to the fine arts - initially returning to the figure and later in-depth exploration in fine art printmaking.
My studio is located at the Hunter's Point Shipyard, Building 101, Studio 2108. I also can be found at the Graphic Arts Workshop, a cooperative fine art printing workshop in the Dogpatch neighborhood of San Francisco.
