I love the serendipity of ink pressing into paper on a printing press. It’s simultaneously exciting and terrifying to roll back the blankets on the press, pull up the paper, and hope all of the variables coincide: the delicate balance of pressure the amount of ink the placement of the stencils I design and cut from metal the type of paper or canvas the colors and how they will mix…often unexpectedly I love the wonder of that successful print…often elusive Color is one of my driving forces, as well as the blessing and curse of an obsessive passion to keep searching for that perfect print regardless of the subject matter, which is always changing. Stories, nature, heartbreak, struggle, beauty, heredity, and navigation of life are some of the things inspiring my imagery.
