I began college as a pre-medical biology student. Eventually I switched to a series of art-related majors, finishing with a B.A. Studio Art and American Indian Studies and a M.Ed. Art Education from the University of Minnesota.
My work is inspired by historical research, blending both antique and modern printmaking techniques in intaglio and screen print (and occasionally lithography.) Major influences include Muslim architecture and mathematical divisions for tile patterns, biology, biomimetics, Mediterranean and American history, and written languages. Math, science and history are woven into most of my works.
