The hand pulled print has been my medium of expression for the last 36 years. I am founder of the Graphic Workshop where most of my work is created and co-founder of the Washington Printmakers Gallery. My works are in several private collections as well as solo exhibitions in the U.S. and Europe. In 2014 I was selected for a 7 month exhibition at the Houston Holocaust Museum; this body of work will be shown again November 2015 at the Washington Printmakers Gallery in DC. Throughout the school year I am a guest lecturer at private and public schools on the subject of my art that deals with WW11. An interview and article about my years as an artist has been featured in the Washington Printmakers Quarterly with an image from my Legacy work on the cover.
Recycled handmade papers, inks and printmaking methods suit my goal in an effort to recreate the complexity of the past. Many of my works are quiet, reflective and intimate, confronting the highly charged subjects of personal and cultural memory. I am inspired to create a permanent impression of works filled with joy, tenderness, caring and humanity balanced with pathos and grief. My need to construct poignant, visual narratives whether from memories, family tales or sketches as well as written journals, remind me of one's inability to fully grasp the past as I turn history into a visual reality.
