PRINTMAKER PROFILE

ARTIST STATEMENT

I’m a printmaker currently living in Cornwall. I grew up in Canada and completed my BFA on the east coast at NSCAD University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I started my degree wanting to be a painter but was instantly drawn to printmaking. I love the repetitive processes involved with making prints, I find it extremely meditative.

I work mainly in relief printing using lino cut and wood cut printing. Recently I’ve been learning wood engraving which allows me to work even smaller with fine details.
