Through the use of traditional and alternative method printmaking I try to explore open-narrative, non-focal, visual experiences. Color and pattern mix with texture to allow the eye a cornucopia of information and experience. The overall mood is not only created by texture and color, but the sequence and repetition of these colors and textures. I do not want my work to make statements; instead it should highlight these juxtapositions of surface and color to allow the viewer to create their own visual narrative experience.
