Printmaker / Mixed-media artist
Wabi-sabi: a concept in traditional Japanese aesthetics centered on the beauty of impermanence and imperfection.
“I am drawn to imperfection in objects as a sign of a thing uniquely made by nature or by the hand of a human being. Regardless of my subject, my artwork attempts to honor the integrity of natural objects and processes and the unique nature of the materials I use, whether wood, paper, ink, brushes, hand tools, even tree-bark, leaves and grass.
In printmaking, I hope to achieve a version of the wabi-sabi aesthetic through visual asymmetry, roughness, simplicity, austerity, or an ethereal quality suggestive of impermanence.”
