My art is divided into 2 galleries. I am a painter and a printmaker. Please visit both the painting and original print galleries.
Because of my science background, I like to experiment with many methods and materials in painting and printmaking. When painting, I most often start with a watercolor that often ends up as mixed media. In printmaking, I may print a monotype (one of a kind) before working with metal (zinc or copper). The complexity of etching, aquatint, and viscosity printing on metal challenges my artistic and technical abilities as I attempt to achieve a painterly print with an appealing combination of line and color. The varied edition (VE) enables me to focus on color. Hand coloring may be added to the print, usually as a translucent dusting of pastel which enables the etching and aquatints to remain visible.
