With my designs I seek to contain reverberating, sometimes jarring images within the confines of the page through the use of color, texture and often mixed media. Whether literal or symbolic, these themes are reinforced through asymmetry, uneven shapes, strength of order and hand-mixed color.
I work with various techniques and combinations of mono- printmaking, hand -coloring and chine collé collage to achieve my vision. The dichotomy of chaos and calm, pervasive and unsettling forces needing structure and limits, inform and direct my work.

Her version of printmaking combines elements of texture, color and design in a compelling manner that is both viscerally and intellectually stimulating.
Dove’s work has been in numerous exhibitions, including: Guild Hall, East Hampton, NY; Sea Green Designs, Southampton, NY; Bailey House, New York, NY; IPCNY, New York, NY; National Academy Museum, New York, NY; and the Longoria Collection, Houston, TX.
