I am an Olympia WA printmaker.
I started working in linoleum about 12 years ago and I continue to love every step of the process. My work has a relational aesthetic and often is narrative with the title giving the viewer a beginning to the story.
Each print is made by hand and is unique. I carve the image in linoleum, then impress the inked carving onto the paper using the back of a wooden spoon. I use a variety of collage paper and apply a fixative to help prevent fading. If a print is requested, it is created from the original linoleum block. Depending on the paper used in the printing process, the new print will vary in color or texture from the image seen on the Prints Gallery pages. It may also differ from any other printing of that same image.
