My images result from multiple applications of chromatic and achromatic layers of ink. I use various mark-making techniques to create surfaces that have the quality of weavings or tapestries. These mark-making techniques also contribute to the quiet atmosphere that the images emit. I begin in one of two ways: by putting down a base layer of blacks and grays (grisaille) and adding color layers on top of that foundation, or by beginning with bright colors and proceeding to neutralize that chromatic base with complementary colors or achromatic and/or earth tones.
