Valentine ’96

After I graduated from JMU, I moved home, only to have all my worldly possessions washed away by a flood. I decided I needed to go to grad school and started printing a whole new body of work. During that time, I decided to print a valentine for all of my friends, who had rallied to my side during this trying time.
