Artist Statement

I have many obsessions. Images dance in my head, perform in my dreams. Drawings of trees, horses, cats, and figures inhabit my journals. I have shelves filled with illustrated journals, a visual and written record of the same visual obsessions I had when I was a child. These images reoccur in my prints and drawings. Wild Cherry is a reduction linocut of a tree I admire on my morning walks. When I See A Dogwood (reduction linocut) is a portrait of a particular dogwood tree across from the city utilities building in Jacksonville. Attitude is a hand colored linocut of my husband’s queenly cat, looking down her nose at me.
