This series of images represents my screen prints or serigraphs. This print technique best serves graphic work and I knew I could strengthen my graphic thinking by devoting time and attention to making them.

Every medium has strengths and weaknesses as do artists. The two must work together as partners in order to make something strong. I once heard Juanita Guinn, a great whitewater canoe paddling instructor advise: It makes no sense to head around the smart side of the rock if your partner is already heading around the dumb side of the rock. This advice holds true as metaphor when working to get the best out of any artistic medium.
