As I work more and more with the cardboard, I discover so much. To be as familiar with my material as possible is a goal. I discovered the range of materials inherent in a cardboard box, such as the smooth outer liner coupled with interior fluted or "honey combed" materials. There are a variety of tones of gray and brown in the box coloring. When photographed, the cardboard has a metal like appearance which was totally unexpectant.
I see myself as a visual storyteller. My narrative mixed media art explores the interaction of words, symbols, and imagery in my art making. My craving for the tactile keeps me bound in traditional printmaking and painting— however, my interest in new technologies has pushed me to explore digital processes and the marriage of the two.
