Artist Statement

My love of poetry and my fascination with making things by hand were joined when I discovered letterpress books. My books and prints begin with a poem or collection of poems. I prefer to set type by hand, to use hand made papers when I can, to bind without adhesives, to print illustrations directly from handmade relief plates. Every edition teaches me something new about language, about type, about paper, about the press, about myself.
