I have always been intrigued by the unique opportunities that printmaking affords; the often unexpected results that captivate me. The process itself, just the physical acts of building the plate and printing, nourish my need for creative expression. The more I enjoy it, the more intimate a connection I have with the work.
The smell of the inks, the energy involved in working the plate, the feel of the paper, the magic of the press; all play a roll in printmaking’s allure. The possibilities are endless and at the end of a printing session, it’s always magical to find out what lies beneath the blankets.
