artist statement

The first card I designed came after a long conversation about the cold winters in Montana and the looming tax season. I remember, my friend remarked how my desk looked like hell and soon left. I sat in stillness and took an old business card and, cutting into it vertically, made a road to a heart. This was for me the beginning of a means of communicating using images and eventually words. The year was 1992.

Since then, I have been designing cards inspired by family and friends or thoughts I need to tell myself. I do believe the road of life is inner and leads each of us to our hearts. My wish is for my cards to share some kindness, kindle a thought or just begin a long awaited conversation with oneself or others.

Best to you on your road.
