I've been printmaking since I was a child. I had the good fortune to learn about lino, silk screen printing and etching at the Art Gallery of Ontario. I've taken a variety of art classes over the years. Most recently, I studied hand paper-making and Japanese-style wood block printing on Vancouver Island, and relief printing, etching, litho and screenprinting at Open Studio in Toronto.
When I am not printmaking or making art, I work as a marine geophysicist, building large machines which employ physics to study the ocean floor, and going to sea to explore this largely unknown majority of our planet.
I am obsessed with paper, and colour and books. You'll find evidence of that here too.
Influences include various fauna, myths and legends, science and the unknown...
