I am a painter, printmaker, and graphic artist.
As a printmaker I’m presently focusing on end-grain wood engravings (end-grain because it allows a finer line…a 19th century technique to be printed alongside type).
I also work in large scale charcoal drawings on mylar; and oil paintings which range from smaller plein air works to larger studio pieces.
I draw my inspiration from nature – whether the birds crowding around the feeders outside my studio window, or deep into wild lands. I especially enjoy bushwhacking in the Adirondacks and Catskills and stumbling upon quiet hidden revelations be they micro or macro… springtails on snow, or a fern glade suddenly spotlit in a forest of maple trees… my art is a reflection on those moments.
