Silverpoint is an ancient medium. Marks are made on a prepared surface with solid silver wire. You cannot erase, and the values are created by working over the surface repeatedly. It takes on a warm patina when it tarnishes. While most artists work on flat panels, I choose found silver objects as the grounds for my work.
Emotion is internal weather. Growing up in a highly dysfunctional family, tornadoes in my dreams have always felt like signals of impending doom, hovering on the horizon, a reminder to brace one’s self against the next disaster, while floods feel like overwhelming sorrow.
