Geometrical Lino Print on Newsprint
A maze like geometric graphic repeated to creat an op art piece with bold contrast. The medium is 4”x6” Lino print with water based ink on an old newsprint roll. This was printed in a pattern on three 2.5’x8’ sections to be used for a backdrop used in studio photography. Stamping process took 5 weeks working in roughly 30 minute sessions twice a week.

Fortuna Skate Park
This was a logo that was created to support the movement behind creating a skate park in Fortuna, California. A group of community members picked up the idea after the tragedy of two local girls were killed in an accident while skateboarding at dusk. Their names are placed on the tail of the skateboard. Additionally paying homage to these young ladies a female skater grabs her deck as she grinds her trucks on the word “Fortuna.” Force lines streak through the black letters creating motion. A redwood tree replaces the ascender of the letter “P.” An illustration of a landscape of mountains and trees with the sun shining above adorns her helmet.
