My artistic journey has taken me from performing artist to visual artist in the most unlikely ways. I originally moved to New Orleans to get a degree in music. Unexpected circumstances led me in quite a different direction. After changing my major to graphic design, I signed up for an intro class in printmaking. It was a hands-on version of what I planned to do on a computer. As the art department put my chosen major on a short hiatus, I kept with printmaking and continued to learn new techniques. When the graphic design program returned, I had already gained such an appreciation and love for the hands on creative process and a certain affinity for the smell of an old-fashioned print shop, that I decided to complete my degree in printmaking. Graduation is a faint memory now, but I continue learning new things about my medium each day.
Creating art provides therapy for the one who is trying to comprehend the world around them. I liken it to meditation, a time for self-examination into my own thoughts and "mind traffic". The subject matter is secondary. The process, or meditation, becomes the true art form. Printmaking is very process-oriented and the need for this type of movement is the only way I can create.
