This body of work was inspired by my experiences as an American living in Japan.  I found myself alternately fascinated and frustrated by the contrast between two dramatically different cultures.

Prints by their normal definition are multiples, and the
element of repetition is important in my work. But I
use the idea of repetition in a different way from the
traditional process of developing one completed image
and repeating it in an edition.

I create plates containing separate images that I can
combine in different ways. The images on the plates
have become my own personal visual vocabulary.
One image can change meaning when combined and
juxtaposed with other images, creating a different
dialog, a different story. Each person seeing the
images is able to find their own meaning.

Often I layer the images one on top of the other or
print on both sides of the paper. This is another way of
combining information, a way of obscuring and adding
to information that was already there.

In my enamel jewelry I utilize the depth and surface of the glass and metal to interpret the myriad layers of cross-cultural understanding and confusion.
In doing so I hope to involve the wearer/viewer in the process of communication.
Communication between cultures, I found, cannot be achieved solely through translation of language. We must learn to read between the cultural lines.

a proverb, catching an illusion, seeing a joke than it
is like achieving communion."
