Printmaking / Book Arts
Call me old fashioned, but I still like to use paper. I love the look, feel, and smell of paper. The widely varying textures, compositions, qualities, colors, and weights provide unlimited possibilities for artistic expression. Paper is the fundamental material I use as a printmaker and book artist at CASP. At the studio you’ll find me tearing, inking, gluing, folding, cutting, or otherwise communing with paper.
I typically use traditional media for my art, and sometimes digital, to give a visual voice to artistic themes. I endeavor to work on meaningful projects in which I am emotionally connected, and I am deeply inspired by the people in my life, especially by my family and friends. I think art is a powerful tool to bring people together. I enjoy working on collaborative projects with other artists and members of the community.
