"I have previously worked in watercolor, pen and ink, and drypoint, but wanted to return to an old favorite: woodcut printmaking. I enjoy cutting into the wood, working in balsa wood, poplar, and pine. The print when pulled for the first time is always an event, particularly thrilling to me. I work from inspiration of subject matter in my near world: [specifically] plants and animals, and use these as a channel to depict particular expressiveness."
