This body of work is loosely based on elements, which suggest blood flow, aquatic life, chain reactions and the teeming life of a microscopic world.

I use the collagraph print process combined with repeated overprinting using monoprint, stencils and hand painting. Each piece of the grid is printed on a small press. I continuously rotate the individual plates, a process while frustrating is also exhilarating. Chance and the recognition of a cohesive whole are dynamic strategies in these prints.
