I am an artist, a printmaker, and an educator based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. I work in drawing, etching, lithography, and screen printing. Through drawing and printmaking, I search for connection and meaning through visual imagery. My work is an attempt to explore (aesthetically) the 21st century experience of news and information. There's a lot out there, and what interests me is how we process or understand what's going on. I use paint, ink, drawing and printmaking to combine images of politicians and world events gathered from the newspaper and internet sources. The result is a jumbled beautiful mess, not unlike American democracy.
