About the Art
I am drawn to the process of photography and printmaking, including cyanotypes, as a way to express myself. It has unlocked a new sphere of creativity after exploring acrylic abstracts and drawing.
These text-based works use the formation of language to become aesthetic images, creating distinct images in a world oversaturated with language.
Hang these word works anywhere you want to start a conversation.
