artwork reflects my interest in color, texture, and design. The
interplay of these elements can be seen in my prints and acrylic and
mixed-media paintings and drawings. Using an expressive style, I
produce work inspired by found objects such as ornamental grasses, by
other images from nature, and by digital photographs taken while
primarily work in the following printmaking media: intaglio, etching,
photogravure, lithography, monotype, and screenprinting. I also paint
with acrylics and do mixed-media work."

Screen printing is a printing technique that uses a woven mesh to
support an ink-blocking stencil. The attached stencil forms open areas of
mesh that transfer ink as a sharp-edged image onto a substrate.
A roller or squeegee
is moved across the screen stencil, forcing or pumping ink past the
threads of the woven mesh in the open areas.
Screen printing is also a stencil method of print making in which a
design is imposed on a screen of silk or other fine mesh, with blank
areas coated with an impermeable substance, and ink is forced through
the mesh onto the printing surface. It is also known as Screen
Printing, silkscreen, seriography, and serigraph.
