Artist's Statement

I am an environmental artist working exclusively in the ancient water-based Japanese art of moku hanga – woodblock print. This medium gives me subtleties of color and tone unavailable in other mediums. Created in small editions, each print is hand painted and hand printed. They are individual works of art – not copies – and never reprinted.
The spiritual connection that I find in the creation of the print is extremely important to me. The process is quiet, calming and meditative. Carving individual wood blocks for each color in the print, isolated profiles are separated and then joined again. This exploration of forms within a space creates a deeper, intimate encounter with nature. The emotional, physical and spiritual energy I use to create a print somehow becomes imbedded within it to reveal the heart and spirit of a location.
I am taking you to a destination, a secret place that you can experience and will want to know personally. Creating a sense of stillness and peace and shelter…… the journey awakens you to the vulnerability of our natural spaces. The significance of protection is stimulated.
The rarely noticed or hidden becomes elevated to the sacred.
