Printmaking
  I was first introduced to monotype printmaking in 1997 by Julia Ayers through her book, Monotype: Mediums and Methods for Painterly Printmaking (Watson-Guptill, 1991). Later, I participated in Monothon 1999, sponsored by the Riverside (California) Art Museum. Since then, my printmaking activities have deepened and diversified. They include monotype prints, chine collé, etchings, woodcuts and Japanese block prints.
     
Paintings
  In 1993, after years of artistic inactivity, I returned to active art creation. At the time, I was a graduate student studying chemistry at the University of California, Riverside, and I used painting as a way to blow off steam. Initially, I started painting in watercolor. Later, I began to experiment with acrylics.
