Printmaking was my entry point into becoming an artist. While still in high school I registered for printmaking classes at SUNY Purchase and then continued to focus on printmaking throughout college. There has always been something about making prints that inspires a feeling of connectedness to the deepest recesses of my soul, that place where I am my most veracious self.
These prints were completed in 2017 while I was a resident at the Heliker-LaHotan Foundation on Great Cranbery Island. One of the gifts of a residency is that there is plenty of space and time to wander. Thus, while I was on GCI, I found myself exploring the myriad options that printmaking presents in an unmitigated way. The printmaker part of my brain became fully activated, I returned to my roots, and the work that resulted pointed back to my earliest days making art.
