Beautiful piece. Got it as a gift for my husband and he loves it. Artist was nice enough to meet me in town and wave the shipping fee. Wonderful customer service and nice to thank the artist in person.
A Printmaker dropping it Old School
I began exploring printmaking years ago after a life drawing instructor recognized my style as one that would translate well to the medium. Always interested in printmaking I enrolled at Mesa College in San Diego, California under the instruction of well known printmaker and mixed media artist Jim Machacek.
My intaglio prints are all done using centuries old techniques. I take no shortcuts. I begin with a clean zinc plate whereupon I etch an image and utilize other techniques such as acid and aquatint to add line and value which can sometimes take weeks. Ink is then applied to the etched plate and pulled though a hand cranked printing roller press onto special water soaked paper. Each series is completely unique and numbered for authenticity.
Inspiration for my work comes from the many intaglio printmaking masters such as Francisco Goya, Kathe Kollwitz, James Whistler, and Otto Dix. The beauty of this monochromatic medium and labor intensive process allows me to delve into personal areas and feelings that otherwise would be overlooked by me.

Inspiration for my work comes from the many intaglio printmaking masters such as Francisco Goya, Kathe Kollwitz, James Whistler, and Otto Dix. The beauty of this monochromatic medium and labor intensive process allows me to explore my world.
Inside you will find my etchings, engravings and lithographs done in the traditional fine art ways of the masters. All my works are done by hand and created in my studio (aka sanctuary).
I hope you enjoy my works and please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions regarding the pieces or how they are made. Printmaking is a unique process and I love to talk about it!
