Artist Statement

The joy of being a printmaker is evident in my art and residencies. The basic reason I am an Artist in Residence is about the celebration of being an artist. I am proud to be an artist and educator. Everyday I try to find new ways to celebrate art through creative choices. Through meditation and guided imagery I find my subjects, colors and intent of expression. It starts with being thankful for my materials. While I am with my students I have an unconditional positive regard for “ALL” students. I make my classes a celebration toward creative expression. In printmaking you can use extreme drawing skills or no drawing skills. With older students there can be complex techniques and with very younger students every thing is simplified.
