Artist Statement

My art, like my research, examines the relationships between humans, the environment, and politics. I use simple tools and processes in my home studio to create wood and linoleum block prints that reflect the intersection of humankind and nature. My prints are almost all hand-wrought, though I’ve begun to use a homemade bottle-jack press for collagraph printing. I also sew giant collages of plastic on canvas.

My work has been shown at the New Britain Museum of American Art, the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History (a Smithsonian affiliate), the Awagami International Miniature Print Exhibition, the Museum of Art and History (MOAH), Lancaster, California, the Wesleyan Potters Annual Show and Sale, MAC650 Gallery, and several times at Middletown Framing in conjunction with the North End Gallery Walk.
