Artist Statement Submitted 2014My interests take form in two complementary and intertwined bodies of paintings and prints: Images that derive from my home life and works relating to my experience as a professor.
Both of these roles are shaped by and react to the rhythms of life in Williamsburg, Virginia, a small- albeit heavily visited southern town shaped by its history, the college, and tourism.
My work from home focuses on domestic rituals and family interactions. These “kitchen sink” dramas focus on universal themes shaped by the particulars of our present time and personal histories.
I spend the majority of my workweek teaching in and maintaining the printshop at The College of William and Mary. I am not interested so much in a visual inventory of the varied printmaking equipment but in showing the experience both spatially and psychologically of being in the printshop.
