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 Center for Works on Paper in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Aside from etching, I also work in monoprints, mixed media painting and environmental installation.

I frequently base my etchings on photographs that I shoot or find in the Image Archives of libraries, historical societies, foundations, 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.

My thematic interests include comparative religion, architecture, tombstone sculpture, cityscapes, mysticism, and Religious Iconography.

My works can be purchased on-line at Saatchi Gallery at https://www.saatchiart.com/account/artworks/17140
