Biography

I am a painter/printmaker living and working in the low desert of Arizona. I work primarily with woodcuts because it is low tech. You don't need a press and you can go as large as you want. Most of my prints incorporate hand stitching and embroidery. It's one method of adding a delicate linear element and also to satisfy my obsessive need for detailed lines. I finished art school with an MFA from Washington University in St Louis studying with the amazing professors of printmaking Joan Hall and Peter Marcus. My prints can be found in many special collections in universities such as The Janet Turner Museum, Colorado State University, Spencer Art Museum among a few. They are hanging in hospitals, offices and private residences nationally and internationally. My favorite venue for my work are literary journals and magazines such as Murze Magazine and Dialogist to name a few.

Artist Statement

I live my life in a very limited space. The world of nature is out of reach for me but still very important. I do what I can with what I have in my space. My imagery originates from books, calendars and the quick glimpses of wildlife that I see out of windows. I covet the insignificant objects of seeds, leaves and pieces of insects that I find trapped in spiderwebs or left under the porch light. These remnants of nature offer clues to the unseen drama that surrounds everyone. They are the seeds for my intimate investigation into the relationship that I have with this world.
