The work I produce focuses on themes surrounding experience and local presence through observations that form connections between place, culture, history, or story. This exploration of local presence is performed through the capture of images and words that find their way into my vision and memory. I search to find light in the dark.
Working in a variety of media, process and experimentation interest me. I strive to create a sense of visual intrigue in my work through the use of processes such as letterpress or relief printing and digital or alternative process photography. The use of handmade papers as well as other high quality materials incorporates tactile experience to interacting with my books and art. As an artist working with the book, craft is integral to my artistic practice. It is the combination of art, the handmade book, and refined craftsmanship that drives my creative process.
