“I love the process of linoleum block printing. The carved surface produces an image with unique clarity that distinguishes it from other mediums. The materials and techniques lend themselves so the artist might share an idea through intimate groups of multiple images. The beauty of hand printing these small editions is that an original idea can be much more available than a single piece while still retaining excellent value. A fascination with oceanic and water related themes and my love of linoleum block printing is where I draw inspiration for these prints.”
