I work with woodcut printmaking. Woodcut printmaking consists of carving a slab of wood, inking the surface then printing onto handmade paper. My intention is find a deeper connection with the world we live. I want to create. Even as I write these words, I feel an urge to start tinkering in the studio. It's about putting things together, taking things apart, being aware for around the corner lies that next great found treasure. The child within helps to keep me in the moment.
Working with children has been a great help at finding the spontaneous in art making. There is no prejudgment on what goes with what in their world. I am often left with awe while enjoying children's art. I regularly teach by holding art workshops and as a substitute teacher. I am also a daddy of 2 amazing little artists. They help keep unconscious flow in life alive.
