Artist's Statement

Printmaking is the art of the masses - its multiple copies can be handed out on a picket line, put into neighbors’ mailboxes, or taped to a lamp post. I draw and carve out images about experiences lived by many - mental health disabilities, fighting the bosses, ecological destruction, and community interdependence. My illustrations may be detailed to be ‘realistic’ but the imperfections of repeated hand prints better mirror the unknowns of daily life. 

As many before me, I also turn to block printmaking for its accessibility. With it being nearly impossible to afford studio space and little availability of community printmaking shops - in our world of private property and capital - I can always turn to the simple tools of my hands to roll ink onto a block, press the paper on as smoothly as I can, peel off in that magic moment of relief - and repeat.
