The "Hello My Name Is" nametage of the art world.
My artist statement aka meet your printmaker:
I create in the same manner that I approach the world, with a level of adventure, curiosity, compassion and expression. I strive to show the beauty that voluntarily appears in the story of our lives. My compositions are these translations. They become the narrative of the world and people that surround me and my story. I use the contentment and wounds we have as humans: mentally, physically and emotionally to create a page of display for others to digest and interpret as their own. Printing allows me the freedom of juxtaposing the imagery, color and emotion of the world around. With carving tools, brayers, paper and a press my hope is to bring life to these stories with each layer I take away, add color, press and translate from a piece of wood onto a surface of paper- creating my print.
