PRINTS

Featured on this page is limited edition prints as well as unique prints and paper constructions.


My process consists of researching all kinds of techniques on paper; stenciled, stamped, dyed and resist, creating a unique palette of color and textures. Building up multiple layers of paint and printed paper I cut into the surface, allowing for a spontaneous burst of hues and vibrating colors.
