My desire to work with mixed media is definitely a result of my upbringing on a farm in southeastern Indiana. Mixed media requires an intimate knowledge of a number of separate media and I relate this to working on a farm requiring skills in a variety of jobs done by hand. My father and mother taught me and my siblings how to complete a wide variety of manual tasks such as milking, butchering, and tying hands of tobacco, just to name a few. It was this frequent changing from various skills, tools and materials that has given me the confidence to work with a wide variety of media, such as drawing, painting, carving, book arts, collage and all forms of printmaking. The works exhibited here combine drawing and painting with collagraphic platemaking techniques from printmaking.
