Why printmaking? It is time consuming, difficult to correct mistakes, and unforgiving. The answer is that despite of the exhaustive amount of work involved, the end result is often more evocative, and powerful than when I work in a medium where I have more control. The message is clarified, the colors truer, and the marks made by cutting into the wood’s surface more decisive.
Currently I am partnering with Point Blue Conservation Sciences to create a series of prints supporting their diverse projects to mitigate the impact of global warming. Influenced by my cattle ranching heritage, my work explores biodiversity and the preservation of open spaces.
