Waking Dream

Waking Dream, an experience you have while you are awake that feels similar to dreaming. 

The artists printmaking series is a collection of whimsical scenes depicting masked characters & shadows lurking in the corners.  


Print Series: They Lurk

Shadows hang on the fringes of the frame, creating a sense of impending dread & anxiety.


Print Series: Play-Online

The eerie monochromatic etchings illustrate a series of masked characters situated indoors while interacting with an electronic device, seemingly absorbed in their activity and unaware of the haunting atmosphere of the physical world. The artist uses very small scratch marks to create the illusion of linen; it is a meditative process that alludes to stitching together an outfit, giving the space in which the subject matter/character is placed.
