Artist Statement

I have worked with relief prints and letterpress text for over 40 years and still love the unique means the media have to embed meaning and impression into a receptive paper surface. My work more recently had addressed social commentary and social justice issues, which allows me to combine my typographic vocabulary with relief carved images and other layered graphic effects.
