Artist’s Statement

After graduating from Moore College of Art and Design in 1966 with a BFA in Graphic Design, I entered the art world in Philadelphia in the areas of package design, corporate logo and promotional design, and worked with magazine layout and design for Ranger Rick, a locally published animal and nature magazine for children.

After 10 years working in the city and freelancing on my own, I decided to return to fine art and my love of printmaking. I worked mainly with linocuts and collagraphs for twelve years and was represented in five tri-state area galleries.

My fascination with color, texture, and pattern has always been my driving force and has allowed me to express and create with techniques that continue to challenge me.

Today, I am a professional papermaker who continues to enjoy color, texture, and pattern combining it now with my collagraph printmaking techniques on my own handmade papers.
