My original intaglio prints are made by creating textures and grooves below the surface of zinc plates. The techniques I use most frequently are acid-etching and aquatinting, engraving, mezzotint, photo-etching, and drypoint. The plate is hand inked and wiped for each printing. Prints are pulled on damp rag paper which is subjected to the great pressure of my manual etching press. Some of the resulting images are then watercoloured.
"I turn to our natural environment for a sense of peace and solace and for artistic inspiration. Printmaking, my chosen medium, is very indirect and elusive. In these intaglio prints there is a sense of the mystery of the wild lands we all need in order to better know ourselves."
I am thrilled to be able to share my artwork with you.
