Artist's statement: "Instead of an edition of identical images, I often create a series of one-of-a-kind images. Each print is a variation created by changing the registration, inking and overlaying during the image-making process, each time a new print is pulled.
My technique allows me to leave a clear record of my process by altering colors and their location and by making different marks and shapes for each new print. The layers of marks become fluid, there is a heightened potential for a new dimension of meaning.
Changing light and reflection from the environment add yet another layer of printed imagery to my hand-printed work."
