Graduated 2000

I’m a printmaker and book artist with a practice that revolves around narrative relief prints, wood engravings, letterpress printing, and crankies. I draw inspiration from the nature I see in my backyard, folk tales, ghost stories, and children’s books. I look for the intersections between story and truth. I read between the lines to find the quiet parts left unspoken. I think about the owls and crows that share the same tree but see the earth below differently. I’m always looking for the light.
