Artist Statement

As a printmaker, I use the versatility of the medium to create diverse representations of the environment and society each of us are placed in. These contexts are the “tool kit” we are provided to forage together our own identities and relationships. The piece Creating; Kind represents the individual in a moment of time. A set of rigid assets are used to create unique combinations of layered textures, objects, and color that are then cut down to create the element needed for the composition. The contrast between the finite nature of the matrices and substrates used and the variability in how they are layered, manipulated, cut, and repeated reflects the shared experiences of a community versus an individual, along with celebrating that relationship and their growth.
