    About

    I'm a lifelong resident of Iowa. I work full-time as an in-house creative and in my spare time I like to create things. Sometimes those things end up here in the form of handmade prints.

    I'm a self-taught printmaker. My designs are hand-printed in relatively small editions (under 50). I enjoy the process of mixing the inks and manually transferring them onto paper—usually with a squeegee (screen prints) but sometimes it's a wooden spoon and elbow grease (linocut prints). It always fascinates me to watch a print come to life as each color is laid down. I strive for perfection but there are always some subtle variations within a print run that are typical with a hand-printed process. But that's part of the charm of handmade goods, making each print an "original" piece of art.

    The types of pieces I create are as varied as my interests and I don't really have a specific style—but there's probably some consistency that can be seen in my work. That will continue to evolve as I experiment, learn, and grow.

    If you have any questions, comments, or just want to talk about art, please don't hesitate to contact me.

    Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to look around.
