I have always had an affinity for the natural world and making art. It made sense for me to meld my interests. My ongoing research includes climate change, bird mythology, invasive animals and anything else in the environment that is both inspiring and disheartening. My preferred medium is printmaking and most of my works are colorful woodcuts.
ADDRESS615 Elm Street Extension, Ithaca, NY 14850
Elm Street and Elm Street Extension are on the west side of the Cayuga Lake Inlet on “West Hill”. If coming from downtown Ithaca, head west as if you are going out Route 79 West. As you go over the bridge over the inlet, take a left on Elm Street (the street that goes straight UP the hill). Elm Street turns into Elm Street Extension. My studio is across the Street from Margaret Reed's studio.
I make my living traveling around the country selling ecologically minded woodcuts. You would find me and/or my booth at festivals from Chicago, IL to State College PA. You can also find my work full time at Handwork in Ithaca, NY.
