I am a Printmaker.
After graduate school I came to New York and had a series of wonderful jobs: Media Director of an Advertising Agency, Director of Public Relations for a Museum and then on to the worlds of Fashion and Beauty for the next 20+ years.
All of that experience ultimately lead me back to art and to Printmaking.

I find the printmaking process freeing. Each process offers opportunities to move the needle. After creating a monotype, monoprint, pronto plate lithograph, dry point, wood cut or mixed media piece I am thinking about how I can push it further.
That may involve combining it with something else to make it richer, or change its character or reinforce what is there already.
When the print is finally released from the press there is a thrill of ultimate revelation. This excitement and discovery is what propels me forward.
