I am a printmaker. I enjoy working with my hands to create pieces of art that reflect the tangibility that comes with printmaking, as well as the abstraction that comes with the evolution of an idea. There are multiple meanings that can be found and interpreted throughout my body of work because, as with all things, there is never one right answer. Printmaking forces me to confront this issue by the making of multiples born from a single image, each serving as a relic of the event. Most artists commit themselves to an idea, often drafting several times before a rendition is created. However, in most of my work, the creation of the initial image is the least time-consuming portion of this process. Instead, I bide my time in its replication. I find it to be a more honest way of making work, complete only when imperfections are included.
