Artist Statement:
The exhibition at Woodland Pattern will focus primarily on work created since I moved from southeast Wisconsin to Central Wisconsin. While the venue has changed, the work is essentially the same, letterpress artists' books on mostly handmade paper. My work is political in nature, as I worry about issues of equality, choices made by and for each of us and questions raised by those issues and choices.
