For the past twenty years I have been making paintings, prints, and, more recently, digital animations that explore the relationship between authentic and mediated experience in contemporary image making. I have not sought to make  my work coherent through a style but through the above inquiry. In my lithographs, I attempt to find a new pictorial and psychological space by locating them at an intersection between botanical illustrations, things-to-do lists, phone message pads, and diaries.
