The purpose of this thesis is to investigate imagery that encompasses my early memories of Vietnam, my immigration to a new country, and my current situation in America. This investigation will also include both my use of Rostow & Jung's water-based intaglio inks, and non-toxic printmaking techniques to help illustrate my imagery. I will discuss not only the similarities and differences of artists who have influenced my work but also my source material. The latter, gained through the observation and documentation of my family, friends, and environmental images.
