Artist Statement

Making a reduction woodcut is the kind of activity that is both unpredictable and confounding. I approach this work without much of a plan which forces a reliance on chance, trust and faith.  
Chance: a roll of the dice  
Trust: that I have the skill  
Faith: in myself that everything will be okay 
My creative process is an act of self-actualization. Dipping into an act of abandon reveals things below the surface that mirror deep thoughts and things experienced. I enjoy the ride. 
“Man and Plant” or humanity vs. nature (with a whole lot of embedded static) seems to reflect the crisis of overpopulation and pollution, one of the many frightening themes of our current day.
