I am an artist living and working in Chelmsford, MA. My original art training was in metalsmithing and jewelry design. Although I still make jewelry, in 2013 I took a bookmaking class in which we learned monoprinting to create material for the pages of our books. I have never made another book, but I was thrilled with the monoprint process which is now my primary mode of expression.
I print using a plate I make with gelatin. My current plate is fairly large, 20″x30″, allowing me to work in a variety of scale. I love the immediacy, the bold use of color, and the challenge to balance control with intuition. Using color, texture, and composition, I strive to create abstract images that are intriguing and harmonious to the viewer.
