Artist Statement

I am a printmaker who works in a variety of mediums. I choose each medium for its specific qualities which dictate my process and become an active participant in the final image.

My influences range from the great painter/printmakers - Durer, Rembrandt, and Goya to Victorian wood - engravings, Kollwitz, Dix, and the Marvel Comics I grew up with in the seventies.

My prints deal with the figure and questions regarding the human condition. The human conditions basic tenets - the search for life's meaning, inevitable loneliness, desire for gratification through food or intimacy, and the omnipresent knowledge of our own mortality are all themes in my work - sometimes implicitly, sometimes explicitly. These facts of the human experience have caused me to become obsessed with portraying the body's physicality and vulnerability, which find their visual expression through a direct and purposefully unpolished mark. By recording my own specific experiences, I hope to create works that are universal.
