About

Life would probably be easier without that in-between; that dubious grey area. But it's a fun place to live. And that's what drew me to printmaking. The entire process of creating a linocut is a grey area of anticipation until the very end. In printmaking, preparation and planning marry with the uncertainty of the unfinished image.

Cutting and gouging out the surface of a smooth linoleum block creates lines and textures. The untouched areas are what create the image. After inking the carved surface, the peel away of block from paper is where that grey area shatters into stark black and white contrast. Creating a print, especially a linocut, is about exploring shapes, lines, and shadows.


I completed my BA in Literature & Writing Studies at California State University San Marcos and have a background in comics and graphic design. Originally a poet, I now work with tangible textures and telling visual stories.
