About

I was trained as a printmaker and focused on intaglio and relief printing. I was really drawn to the delicacy and permanency of zinc and copper etching. All scratches and acidic marks leave their history on the sensitive metal surface. I really liked the idea of the history of the plate and how I could integrate that into the image I was working on. Once I graduated and started painting I carried the concept of incorporating a paintings history into the final image, thus the reason for grid marks, perspective lines and why I don’t make sketches of my works.
