My work is the result of experimentation and chance using four things that I love: paper, print, collage and color. Full sheets of heavyweight paper are uniquely printed from antique wood type, cut into strips and collaged on wood panels using archival PVA glue. Thick layers of epoxy resin are used to coat each work, resulting in brilliant, lively colors that show natural mark making from relief printing as well as overprinted color shapes. I consider this series a demonstration of creative color play with the “work” being the multiple processes used in its creation. I hope that every viewer receives a color benediction as an enjoyable, visually saturated experience.
