Printmaking for me is an exuberant, mysterious process. "Mistakes" and unintended happenings lead the way to unexpected creativity. Marking a plate is marking the unconscious and the dream that emerges is the artwork. My subjects are animals, masks, words, fantasy figures, gardens.
A recent woodcut series is an emotional response to school shootings, especially the horrifying Sandyhook/Newtown massacre in 2012.
