A white narcissus and a white paper screen
illuminate each other from
in this quiet room.*

A white narcissus and a white paper screen are poetic images that illuminate and enhance one another. This same phenomenon is reflected in my photographs and prints which work as pairs or suites. Each individual artwork becomes richer in relation to its partner image or images. As suggested in the poem above, the solo work illuminates its companions and vice-versa. Playing with sets allows me to explore many facets of an idea. In the wood block prints and monotypes, I explore tree and plant forms; in my photographs I work with reflections in water and with groupings of trees.
