Artist's Statement

I have been a relief printmaker and book artist for over 20 years, and work primarily with woodblock and mixed media printmaking techniques. My print shop, ABRAZOS PRESS, ( is a teaching facility as well as a professional print shop for projects and studio work. In this digital age I still revere hand work ,and  the pleasure of carving wood, taking the time it takes and feeling connected to carvers and printers down through the ages makes me proud of my craft. My imagery is often quirky, colorful, and has been exhibited nationally and internationally,most recently in Havana , Cuba, Venice , Italy ,Holland, Japan and Worcester, Framingham, and Northampton,MA.  In print media , my work has recently  been  published in THE HAND MAGAZINE, and PRESSING MATTERS magazine. I was featured in issue 25 of the British printmaking magazine with an article I worte about the Paper Boate Flotilla, a collaborative printmaking project with printmaers in Havana, that I was part of in the Fall of 2023.

In December 2022 I published a limited edition soft cover book The Wood Block Index 1999-2021, which is a 130 page compilation of 130 black and white prints from blocks I have carved . the book was designed by John Kramer and photographed by Julia Featheringill. Copies  cost $40, and will be available during OPEN STUDIOS.
