Artist Statement

I started working in woodcut while doing a gut rehab of a little building. Making use of wood scraps from the dumpster, I handprinted on the plywood floor, constructing images out of multiple blocks and layers. To this day, I use only found lumber, employing the grain, scars and “defects” of the wood.  Through these variations in the wood’s surface, the reduction process and an experimental use of color, I strive to attain a painterly quality within the hard line of the woodcut medium.
