Creative expression for me is ever-changing yet fluid. The marks in my woodcuts are synonymous to the turns I make on my surf and snowboards, in the ocean or mountains; a reaction to my environment, a conversation with my materials. Currently based in Portland, Maine, my lifestyle invigorates my artwork and challenges it to adapt. Driven by the discoveries that unfold along the journey to the completed print, I remain extremely process oriented. Whether carving away a chunk of tree with an ax or burying prints beneath the high tide line, the explorations, detours and unexpected alterations that occur have taught me to revel in the resilience of my materials.
