February 1992 | Prospect Heights, Brooklyn
When I bought my house in 1992, it had been boarded up and vacant for over 10 years. 
The front door was an 8' x 4' plywood board with a large chain lock on it.
All the original 24 windows had been removed and plywood put in their place.  
There was no electricity or water.
All the brass water pipes had been stolen.
There was a huge hole in the roof allowing the rain and snow to flow freely into the empty 4th floor bedrooms.  
Most of the original late Victorian details had been removed by vandals while the house stood vacant.
The plaster had fallen off the walls and lay in huge piles on the floor. 
Friends have called it the Addams Family house, but my home represents the opportunity to express my true love, color.

NEW WORK


Focused on the discovery of 
CAUSE + EFFECT 
through the printmaking techniques of drypoint etching,
embossing, polymer, relief, and the use of aniline and natural dyes.



SOUL AWARENESS

I STAND, UPRIGHT

 HELD WITHIN MY SOUL

discovering the cause + effect

Harvested from my garden, nicotiana solanaceae plants are passed through the etching press. The natural dyes and oils from the plants leave an image on the BFK Rives paper.

The paper is then dyed with kakishibu, the fermented juice of unripe persimmons fruit. 
   Aniline dyes are poured or painted onto the paper.
The excess dyes are washed off and the paper is ready to print.
 Finished print | SOUL AWARENESS
