“For much of my adulthood I've been trying to relearn what every five year old understands about color and composition."
I live in Putnam County, Indiana, a predominately rural area that continually feeds my appreciation and wonder for the natural world and small town America. With formal art education in Natural History illustration, I was fortunate enough to learn woodblock printing from world renowned print maker, Tom Huck, of St. Louis, Missouri. This art form is now the primary focus of my work.
Wildwood Press is the name of the studio from which all my woodblock prints are printed. Appointments can be made to visit the studio if you are in the area and would like to see artwork in person (or just learn about woodblock printing). To do this, please send me an email through the CONTACT page of the website.
I'm constantly producing new work. Please check back to the website for additions. You can also sign up for my newsletter in the Contact section of this website. You'll be the first to hear about new work, receive special 'newsletter member only' discounts, and get the latest news before it's released to the general public. And of course you can follow me on Facebook and Instagram (links below).
Thank you for supporting your local artists.
