As a fine artist, I immerse myself in 2D arts: painting, photography & printmaking.  I am fascinated by the many & various processes and tactile qualities involved in etching and printing, from the relative simplicity of a linocut created at the kitchen table, to more sophisticated methods. Often starting with photos, I take inspiration from nature.  Other work takes inspiration from functional, man-made objects, beauty in the mundane; padlocks, keys, tools, bikes, books and & chairs.  I am attracted by the relationship between positive & negative, by their compositional qualities.
