In my current body of creative work, I take what I know, what I have learned from living with a chronic illness, and translate it into a more universal language. I strive towards communicating how natural cycles of the world around us correspond to our life experiences. My work focuses on capturing different stages of growth and renewal within an environment that exhibits elements of decomposition and decay. Ambiguous landscape and flower imagery serve as metaphors for human experience, the elusiveness of life, of illness, and of death. 

I began working with this imagery in a body of work consisting of a series of black and white intaglio prints. These images culminated in the image Sunflower V, a 36” x 28” edition print. I then turned to exploring these same ideas through the use of multiple-color plate imagery in intaglio.
