Over the years, the content of my work has included images associated with places that are special to me, sociopolitical issues, as well as the expressive nature of space, texture, and color.

I have incorporated litho elements into many of my monoprints.  In some instances, the litho plate was printed on white paper, and then color was added with a series of lexon plates.  In other instances, I have created a monotype, and then added the litho image, thus creating a monoprint. I often incorporate other elements such as, drypoint, collagraph and/or woodcut. I strive to create images that appear simple and serene to the viewer/myself, while employing varied and complex layering processes.  What processes are used is determined as the print evolves.

I studied printmaking at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA most semesters, between 2001 and 2011.  Prior to 2001 I was enrolled in printmaking classes at Southern CT State University and the Creative Arts Workshop in New Haven, CT.

I hold Bachelor and Masters Degrees from Southern Connecticut State University

I am a member of Full Tilt Print Studio, Hyde Park, MA, where I do my printing.  I am also a member of the Monotype Guild of New England. I served as its President from 2005 through 2008 and its Exhibition Chair from 2008 – 2011.  I am also a member of the New Haven Paint & Clay Club, in New Haven CT, The Hamden Art League, Hamden, CT and the New Haven Arts Council.
