Piece description from the artist
My most recent body of artwork deals with the use of repetition, optical illusions, abstraction, and mark making. They have an abstract quality to them (though are not necessarily abstract) and almost always contain the motif of a circle, or another geometric shape. My medium of choice is printmaking, though recently I have been doing some incredible experiments with collage work, as well as drawing. I have also been working in alternative photography processes, particularly cyanotype, and using the process as a means of fine art instead of photography and creating beautiful one-of-a-kind works of abstraction. I have been showing my work in galleries and exhibitions since two thousand and seven and have had over fifty shows, nine of them solo, several publications and multiple awards, including best artwork and people's choice awards. My work has been shown primarily throughout the United States in Michigan but has also appeared in Chicago, New York, Seattle, Kansas, Arizona, Philadelphia, and North Carolina, as well as internationally in Canada, England, Colombia, Australia, Japan, China, Wales and Malaysia. I also have many of my prints and paintings in personal, private and permanent collections throughout Michigan, as well as in Chicago, Philadelphia, Seattle, Toronto, Boston and at the Detroit Institute of Arts Department of Prints and Drawings. My work is also in international collections in Derbeyshire, England, the Chengdu Academy of Fine Art in Sichuan, China, the Hambis Printmaking Museum in Cyprus and the Museum of Modern Art in Wales (among others).
