Doing the work on the offset press really sharpened my understanding of color (thank you Kenneth Bates for your very excellent design training) and awakened something that I now think defines me artistically...pattern.
My later work continues an exploration of pattern. I have a series of geometric works using graphite to create pattern and cutting and weaving pattern into the paper.
My most recent work is the work is done on rice paper, using a plastic cut-out of a motif I created by blackening in squares on graph paper. Then I used a pochoir technique with water color and/or sumi ink, to paint individual squares while I randomly turned and flipped the stencil, creating a fabric like image.. Again patterns, patterns.
