My hand printed, original woodcuts and linoleum block prints are created at my studio in Eugene, OR. Most of my prints are fabricated in limited edition series and all are created as archival quality artwork suitable for framing and display. I fulfil commissions for prints used as illustrations and am equally comfortable working in color and black-and-white.
The precision of printmaking grants me the structure to tell the stories I see around me and to show what I notice and think about. The discipline demanded by the art form is enticing and seductive and what draws me to it again and again. Each stage requires vision, patience, skill and craftsmanship. Each one must be fulfilled before the next one can begin. Each is a layer in the eventual story. Often I think of my images as illustrating imaginary tales. Sometimes I caption them as if they are excerpts from a book. They are like plates, lifted from a dusty, old volume of stories.
