Artist Statement

Printmaking as an avocation is an exciting extension of my prior scientific background; it is like having a research laboratory again. That experience lends itself to both classical printmaking and some of the more modern techniques in printmaking. As an instructor, I am able to offer students at all levels a variety of ways to get an image on a plate and refine it through multiple techniques. My job is to invite inquiry and inform, then get out of the way – being available, but not intrusive.
