Announcement   I am a painter and printmaker in Watsonville, California. My work explores the boundaries between reason and myth. Reason and myth both help us to understand the world, one by describing facts, the other by telling stories. The place where they meet is sometimes fraught with tension, sometimes filled with magic.

The fine details are amazing, the artwork is even more beautiful than the photo conveys.

I purchased four different Camino prints, each one being significant for myself and three people I met on The Way. The art work is just beautiful, and came packaged very carefully. I'm about to send my three friends their individual artwork this week! They are all so excited!

About

I love prints!

Making prints is like doing the best puzzle in the world. You think of an image, think of it in black and white, reverse it, carve it, then see it in reverse again when you print it. It is an infinite joy to figure a print out, and then to make it happen. I hope some of my joy is conveyed in my final pieces.

    In 2006, after walking the Camino de Santiago, I felt the need to make a series of black & white images. I said, "Why not prints?" I immediately carved 20 blocks, and was hooked. I have not stopped since.
