Artist Statement
As someone whose artistic expression is firmly based in drawing, I find that printmaking,
especially intaglio, provides me with the widest range of tools for my needs.  
Through the use of the traditional still life image, I capture what is special about everyday
objects and the intrinsic beauty of the commonplace.
My mezzotints are an examination of
light and dark using the still life as vehicle to study how glass and simple objects can
create an atmosphere of mystery and meaning by manipulating the shadows and
reflections of the objects and their surroundings.
