i love to be out in the woods and mountains so I create as much of my artwork as I can outside. There is infinite inspiration everywhere I hike and I feel fortunate to live in such beauty.
Etching and engraving is a time consuming process that also requires much time in my studio printing. Each piece is hand-wiped and hand pulled with multiple plates inked in different colors and all printed on the same sheet of rag paper.
The soft- ground etching process that I often use with the engraving creates a soft pencil drawing look to my work that is not usually associated with etchings.
