Most of these landscapes are created through three printmaking processes. Etching, Lithography and Monoprinting each lend a different type of mark to the work, yet all have a soft matte quality that I find is best obtained by pressing ink into paper. I want this quality because my work is more concerned with imagery than physical texture, though I do include visual texture. I also find the process of making prints to be cathartic because I use most of my body and concentration throughout creating and printing a plate or stone. Some of my work has been created outside of printmaking in order to address my own questions about presenting my spaces both large scale and in a three-dimensional state.
