“I find engaging with the physical and direct process of relief printmaking very meditative!
The step by step aspect of the process helps me slow down to more fully consider and explore a variety of creative choices as I distill the visual aspects of my subject matter.
It appeals to my love of making things by hand and respect for craftsmanship.”
