While I started down the art path with the concentration in painting, this eventually led me to both printing and ceramics. In the late 90's I started taking pottery with a friend and quickly found it satisfied many of my creative itches.
In 2009 while attending Haystack in Deer Isle, Maine, I was introduced to Mitch Lyons and his unique clay mono-printing techniques. I was instantly hooked as it combined the qualities of clay that I love, with the freedom of design (and erasing!) of printing, as well as a delightful touch of serendipity as the pieces were actually printed.
Since then I have been slowly working this two dimensional art into my studio life, using a slab of clay as the plate and colored slips as the ink. The actual print is pressed into a sheet of fabric (Reemay) and is permanent.
