I have been making prints since I was a kid – starting with an early lino-cut Christmas card which printed with the words reading backwards. I have tried practically every print media I’ve ever heard of, but presently do mostly encaustic monotypes and the occasional gelatin print. Having grown up way out in the country I have always looked to nature to center myself, and to restore balance to my mind and my world. I spend time in the woods or by the water letting the rhythms of the world become part of me. I create prints with patterns reminiscent of barks and leaves or water, and often tear them up and collage them. Whatever I put into my art, it always includes the joy of creation, the love of art, and the happiness in my ability to create it.
