Working with mixed media and elements of collage, Judith T. Greenberg constructs rhapsodic friezes characterized by rhythms of line and outbursts of color. The repetition of forms is reminiscent of William Morris's wallpaper designs; the calligraphic gestures also nod to Hokusai.

Greenberg's unique and practiced style results from a combination of formal art training and a great deal of experimentation over time. Nine years ago, after being introduced to printmaking, she began developing her current methods. "My process continues to evolve," she says, "as I experience and learn more."
