The process of printmaking is very therapeutic for me. I’ve found that I’m able to communicate much better through images than words and the actual process of any kind of art focuses my mind like nothing else can. I’m generally a very quiet person who is more than happy to sit and sketch or just observe things that go on around me.
My education is in graphic design and that has been a big advantage to me as an artist. Knowing how to compose an image so it has movement and a focal point is really important.
I discovered printmaking about 15 years ago and believe it’s the perfect medium for me. Everything I know about printmaking is self taught and learned by taking classes, talking with other printmakers, reading books or just experimenting with materials.
