I am a multitalented artist. I am a painter, illustrator, and cartoonist; however my medium of choice is printmaking.
I worked for a print shop for a while. My only companions during the day was a large laser printer, an old Epson inkjet, and a thermal gold foiler. Getting intimate with the printers made me curious about other printing processes. During my lunch breaks, I would watch youtube videos on various printing techniques like screen printing, etching, and block printing. I followed my curiosity to books and a summer long quest to learn about these ancient techniques. Who knew that working an normal 9-5 job would lead me down the path of printmaking.
I feel grateful that what some would consider menial transformed into something magical for me. Printmaking and other traditional techniques has helped give my life purpose and meaning. I hope to bring the same joy to the masses.
