Statement

I strive to capture and express the suspended moment when everything falls away and life is sensed directly.

The natural world is my inspiration. Its rhythms have measured out our lives for ages. I marvel at its structure and lose myself in its detail. It is with nature that I feel most human.

Printmaking supports my creative process by giving me the framework on which to build my ideas. Using gouges or a stylist, I carve and scratch into the plate while sensing the image through my tools. This mark–making often adds a third dimension to the finished print. Each hand pulled print is an original piece of art reflecting the dialogue between artist, plate, ink and paper.
