Update- Ive been on a hiatus for a while. Im mostly drawing now until I can get my press up and running.
I use dream-like imagery in my art to enhance or provide a different way of looking at everyday reality. My works are symbolically structured and mostly based on my personal experiences. Presently, my primary focus is block printing, though I occasionally work with other media. I'm currently working with two themes. In the transitions series, I create contrasting environments of safety and danger and compose womb-like settings with the subject in various stages of emergence or retreat. I've also recently started a series of block prints of children, containing folklore and fairy tale elements based on my family history, referencing paintings, stories, poems, and etc... that were dear to me as a child.
Im an Alabama native currently living in Northeastern California with my husband, two boys, and various critters.
