Artist Statement
My appreciation for the world that surrounds us is profound. In my studio, I stand at the podium of my press and with each print express my appreciation and gratitude. The simplicity of carving linoleum is a meditation on positive and negative, transparency and opacity, contrasts and harmony. The challenges of multicolor printing are a slow motion drama that unfolds one step at a time, each step taking days to accomplish. I've taken on the pace of this commitment to a single image with pleasure and love.
