Printmaking offers infinite opportunities to release a visual idea… magic unfolds when the paper and plate meet in hand-pulling through press. Successes and mistakes in the studio, as in life, offer the chance to learn more, to see the world a little differently.
Visual artists communicate in a language of symbols, icons and optics. This happy circumstance places us in a position to communicate outside the constrictions of the spoken or written word. It is my hope that through my work I can help foster a deeper personal connection between our innermost selves and the natural world, unhindered by the barriers of language.
By exploring expressions of time, place, culture and spirit, and abstracting the moments into emotional experience, my goal is to reconnect us to the spirit realm that moves just below the surface of the ordinary world. My husband, saxophonist & Jazz educator John Doheny, and I make our home in New Orleans, Louisiana.
