“…Printmaking contextualizes the themes I am working with because of its historical roots in tourist paraphernalia from the early 20th century such as post cards, and also in the use of colonial propaganda posters that encouraged settlement in North America. Romanticism plays a key role in many large scale lithographs of dewy Canadian landscapes and promise of opportunity.”
