I look at the world around me as a creative space, listening, and observing; I am making a visual language. The page is a particular place for me, functioning like studio space, a place for experimentation and note-taking. I take snapshots. I am inspired by the urban environment, particularly architecture and quotidian objects. I use my sketchbooks and photographs as reference materials. I meditate a lot; therefore, my work is a practice of clarity. I love circles and distinctive geometric shapes, chance encounters, and repetition. I make collages and use steel templates and handmade stencils in my drawings and prints.

Working with geometric shapes and a limited palette, I want the viewer to insert their own narrative into my work. I love shadows and found that printing ghost impressions, I can let chance take over. I want black ink to be like writing on the page of my own language, describing night, nature, constellations, the enormity of the physical world, and the universe above.

I use an etching press and ink up craft foam circles, triangles I cut from Plexiglas, and steel templates borrowed from a metalwork shop as plates to make my prints. I am employing a process where I place a collage of inked shapes and templates onto the press bed and then sandwich the paper on top of the plates. Sometimes I lay the paper or many papers down first, arranging the shapes in compositions on top. I am ghosting printing, printing without re-inking a plate, pulling several images, organizing, and rearranging paper and plates.

I use found papers, books cover, and proofing paper. The proofing paper (vintage and from an old letterpress operation) is long and allows compositions to unfold.

I am monprinting and not making multiple originals. I work on each print over a period on time, adding colors and patterns. Titles are essential and add to the composing of the work and the reading of the printed page.

Akua intaglio ink on vintage legal pad
8.5 x 14 inches

By inking metal plates that I get from a sheet metal shop and craft foam shapes, I've developed a form of monoprinting where I employ ghost printing, and I print on the same piece of paper several times. My process involves a lot of chance. Although not beholden to strict printmaking.

I was commissioned by New York-Presbyterian Hospital to make a series of monoprints in pairs. I took this opportunity to highlight brighter colors, using the yellowed background of vintage paper as negative space and concentrated on the all-over play of shapes.
