Works on Paper

Ink, liquid graphite, charcoal, pastels, oils, homemade dyes...Layering, cutting away, pasting over, collage.  I use old time-worn copies of hand-written letters in Russian Cyrillic from my mother & father and copies of text from Russian newspapers or poetry books, interweaving pieces from the language of my childhood, to add layers of texture, meaning and personal history to my work.

Here is a selection of some recent works.
