My work is based on observation of patterns, reflected light, shadow, and line. I am most interested in trying to capture those images that are visible for only a brief time then disappear. These images provide a starting point for a monotype, linocut, collagraph, or etching. The print becomes a reminder of the day and a record of a particular moment. Our family gatherings are sometimes formal but are more often impromptu get-togethers. This print from my Family series, Muriel, portrays our 2-year-old niece just after having s’mores in the backyard. The youngest of three sisters, she doesn’t talk much, but she has no trouble communicating how she feels through her expressions and body language. — Kathi Knox
