My work comes from an evolution of life experiences, an anthology of thoughts, feelings, memories and stories woven together. Reflections that have been in hibernation; awakened and propelled into motion by circumstance and happenstance.

In the letterpress studio, I am able to mix both the two-dimensional world of printmaking with the three-dimensional of setting type and preparing the “forme” for print. A wave of nostalgia, induced by the smell of inks, the feel of quality printing paper, and the silence of sleepy old presses, is the wellspring for my creative process.
