This past year has been filled with personal and social challenges; death, health, politics, forest fires to name a few. I have been inspired to use fire and smoke expressively. Many of my pieces include soot, singeing, toasting and burning. I use these finishes, along with inks (alcohol, acrylic, India) on paper and ceramic – utilizing techniques such as mirroring, crumple origami, and washes.
