Artists in Residence are encouraged to participate in other public programming by providing the public a glimpse into their process through demonstrations, workshops, talks and an exhibit in the Press Gallery. Local artists have the opportunity to work alongside our national and international visiting AIR.

My original artistic practice was painting starting in high school, but I took a lot of years off after college to pursue a graphic design career. Stacks of logos and letterhead, brochures and billboards later, I did it all and won some graphic design awards while playing the corporate game. I started painting again after years as a graphic artist for relaxation. My paintings now reflect my moods, some conversations and miscellaneous concepts that roll around in my head. These ideas sometimes need to be explored. My work is generally very graphic, because of my profession. My creative process involves several factors coming together. I constantly rip pages out of publications with interesting/unusual color combinations. These torn pages become my painting color palate. I pair this with an idea in my head involving positive/negative shapes and areas on the canvas.
As the ARTSPACE Artist in Residence, my goal is to discover and highlight the space between objects and areas of the visual composition. I want to combine the skills I’ve learned in acrylic painting with the “to be discovered” printmaking process to achieve this. I propose adding acrylic and ink color to the surface and then utilizing the press to remove/or partially mask, large areas of color to form spaces between. The limited exposure I’ve had to printmaking has shown me that heavy ink application can completely mask the underlying color surface beneath and a lighter application of ink over a colorful surface leaves the slightest color tone. I plan to spend time in the application of color to my paper surface utilizing acrylics and ink, then using the presses to achieve the masking and partial masking of shapes and areas. I do not plan to register these areas, and let the process guide me. I feel that the printmaking processes will bring a new dimension to my work that I would not otherwise be able to achieve.
