WELCOME to my website. The original etchings I create are a combination of drawing, photo-etching, engraving, aquatint, and watercolour painting. My process of intaglio printmaking is indirect and elusive but I love the hands on tactile nature of acid etching my images into my zinc and copper plates, inking and wiping the plates and using the pressure exerted by my manual etching press to pull the ink from the plate onto my damp rag paper. Adding watercolour to the resulting images fulfills the painter in me.
There is a sense of peace and solace in my landscape images and my work is a celebration of our natural heritage.
I AM PLEASED to have gained an international reputation with my work and have participated in many solo exhibitions and group shows throughout Canada, the United States, Europe and the Far East.
My artwork is included in many public, private and corporate collections including External Affairs in Ottawa and the Art Gallery of Ontario and I have been fortunate to have received numerous awards.
THANK YOU for visiting. I am thrilled to be able to share my artwork with you.
