Resume

I am an artist working and living in Maine.

I mostly work on and with paper: drawings where the medium (like colored pencil) sits on the surface; drawings using the thinnest of papers, so that the ink penetrates and alters the paper; woodblock prints, adding layer after layer of ink until the paper can’t take any more; and three dimensional paper forms.

I have also recently started working with other materials such as modeling clay and wood.
