This is an original hand made linoleum cut print and limited edition of 3. Each print has its edition number, title and is signed on the front. This is an ode to some of my street artist friends who create their art in public spaces. There is a fine line between art and vandalism, and when a public artist creates a piece that is truly effective, it creates an entirely new world for the time it lasts.
I am a printmaker, illustrator and chicken lover. Relief printmaking, especially woodcut and screenprinting, are my primary medium. My previous field was illustration and design before I moved into printmaking. What drew me into printmaking was the anticipation of seeing the final result after all of the process that goes into each print. Every step in the creation of a print can almost be viewed as its own art form. The entire process must be planned out ahead of time, because once each step is completed you cannot change the course of the image. I enjoy this fact because it forces me to fully realize the image before I start the process. But even with all of the planning involved, the outcome is still uncertain until the print is completed, so it always keeps the process fresh and exciting for me.
