Left to Their Own Devices“Watercolor was my initial medium of choice, but my current goal as an artist is to explore new avenues in my creative journey – primarily the printmaking processes of monotype, etching, solar print, linocut and collagraph (Right: Left to Their Own Devices). I have also explored the fascinating and creative world of digital painting and collage, which has added a new, more abstract dimension to my work. I particularly enjoy the physical element of printmaking techniques and am most gratified when I can share my work with others.”
