I was introduced to printmaking as a sophomore at Northern Kentucky University in 1995, carving into a block of birch plywood, rolling ink onto its surface, and making my first print. I quickly felt that printmaking, and woodcuts in particular, would be something I would continue to make the rest of my life. I was then introduced to the art fair circuit and the life of a printmaker, through working part time printing and framing for a professional artist as I was finishing my degree. I graduated with a BFA in 1999 and slowly began to apply to and participate in local and regional fine art fairs. Today, I continue to participate in around 14-18 art fairs a year, and have been accepted into many of the top fairs in the country. After moving with my family to Niagara, Kentucky in 2014, almost all of my work has been inspired by, or based on, the rural landscape we live in and the area within a short distance from my home.
