Artist Statement

My fascination has always been with the organic line of Nature, most specifically, the ocean.  I both live and work on the Atlantic and have found it to be an infinite source of line, color, shape and composition.  Drawing, painting and primarily printmaking have been my tools for the exploration of this natural subject matter.  The layering process that printmaking affords has made it my primary means of description.  The accidental and intentional qualities of  drawing and printmaking in particular are what make them a perfect fit for my study of nature as a metaphor for life.
