Mistress of the Peacocks, 2009, intaglio print, 16 x 6”

Ever since I was a little girl, I have had a love for nature and the outdoors. My life-long fascination with nature is the basis for my inspiration reflected in my prints. In one series, “Illuminations of the World”, my prints are based on the personification of certain aspects of nature. My other series, “Soaring on a Tempest”, reflects my fascination with flight. My dreams and imagination are sources for the vivid imagery in the works presented. I look at natural events and creatures to inspire certain elements in my prints. My hope is to encourage viewers to use their own imagination to broaden their view of the natural world. I want people who view my work to truly think about the earth that surrounds them, and to enjoy the mysteries that flourish in the wildness of nature.
