Early Work

The process of printmaking connects closely with how I enjoy working. Each precise step needed for preparing a print parallels my desire to create patterns and texture. Being intimately involved in each step of the printmaking process allows me to give complete attention to detail. I take advantage of the variable print and truly stretch the usage of each matrix. Changing the color, paper, and orientation, I create a large number of works to use to physically assemble homogeneous three dimensional pieces.

These are images of work I created from 2016-2018. There is a mixture of 3- dimensional works along with the traditional etchings. They are divided up into subject matter. Some works are still available, inquire if interested.

Bee Series

This series focuses on bees. I considered how they created their homes, their natural instinct for congregation and their ability to preserve in nature. I see the inner workings of the community and the bee' interaction with their habitat.

Sea Coral

I have become very aware of the importance and beauty of coral life. These solar plate etchings are depicting their movement, vibrancy and life. The fish seem to be peering at the viewer. Their life in in our hands, how can we help.

Birds Murmuration

Birds are humble and relatively small elements in our world.

They group and gather together typically for migration purposes. They travel large distances, observing land, people and history.

Floral

These images are a mixture of line drawing etchings and soft ground leaf impressions. As I travel I collect flowers and leaves to flatten. I then press leaves into copper plates to create a impression. These impressions have a story and history along with many memories. They are my journal.
