Artist Statement
I create etchings that use the studio techniques of INTAGLIO, AQUATINT, DRYPOINT, & CHINE COLLE. All of my works are hand-printed on a Charles Brand professional press at The Fleisher Art School's OPEN STUDIO IN PRINTMAKING in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where I act as an artist's mentor and studio manager. Aside from printmaking, I also work in mixed media assemblage, painting, and liturgical installations.

I base my etchings on my own photographs and the ones I find in the archives of libraries, historical societies, foundations, houses of worship, and universities. Many of my etchings are created on multiple plates to give the work a window-like illusion. I use oil-based-etching inks and natural printmaking papers. I sometimes enhance my etchings with watercolors.

My thematic interests include comparative religion, architecture, archaeology, cityscapes, mysticism, and Spiritual Iconography.
