Thank you for your interest in carrying my work! I got my start as an artist by working with a gallery owner to price and sell my work. I was so lucky to have that mentorship and jumpstart into business.
Now, as a gallery owner myself, I understand how important it is to offer customers beautiful, high quality items. I am delighted to be able to sell my work in shops across the country!

I specialize in linoleum block printing. Printmaking is a lesser known medium that was popularized in Asia hundreds of years ago and makes its way in and out of the art world. I love printmaking for its process of flipping traditional positive-negative space techniques and creating the work in reverse as the block functions more or less like a stamp.
To create a piece, I draw out a design on linoleum. Then, I carve out everything that I don't want to show up in the print. When the block is ready, I roll ink onto the block and pull it through my 15" etching press. I repeat this process for each color in a multicolor print, working from lightest color to the darkest. Unlike many printmakers who stick to one-color prints or large blocks of color, I utilize layering of colors and meticulously detailed carving to create a painterly wealth of textures, depth and gradients. I keep my editions small (15-100 prints per edition), and sign and number each one.
