Artist's Statement

Books have been a great source of ideas for my work, especially illuminated manuscripts.  Within these small illustrations one can see the world as it appeared in the Middle ages as well as images that reflect our own times.  Each one tells a story that can be understood without reading the text.  I am fascinated by the architecture and costumes of the figures in the pictures and have attempted to translate these images into my lino prints.
