Working in a variety of media, her techniques are well suited to the feel of each image. In the handmade paper series, monoprints resemble cave paintings. The irregular edges and surfaces add a sense of weight and history to the pieces. Pearcy's figurative work is more traditional, graceful. In contrast, the etchings have a sharper linear structure. Each piece has its own style and presence.
