Artist Statement

I always think about how to align myself with the canons of art and specifically the vein in which printmaking resides. I consistently return to the mysterious tales of the romantics to find my inspiration. Their craft as makers and ability to express emotion through their narratives of love and life is something that I hold in the highest esteem. My practice as a whole is autobiographical predominantly dealing with loneliness and my own insecurities as a human being.  As a maker, I am not nailed down to a specific technique, but more so obsessed with the act of printing and matrix creation. I am not the type that can just make a drawing, I need to carve the block or engrave the image in order to find my catharsis. It’s this collaboration of hand, matrix and printing press that drives my work and heightens my conceptual thinking.
