In college, while majoring
in printmaking, I began engraving. I have continued studying and
expressing this technique further over the years. After
graduating from Art school I began studying jewelry engraving,
and since that time this form of engraving has been my primary
focus. Engraving on jewelry is a slightly different process than
engraving for printing purposes: the same tools are used but
they are sharpened differently.
Recently I have decided to return to printmaking. The smell of
the ink and carefully printing an edition for the first time in
a while has brought back many memories. All of the prints on
this page are taken from hand engraved copper plates. (By
clicking on a print you will see both: the print and engraved
copper plate). There are many ways to make prints. The prints on
this page are engravings and mezzotints. Just a few have been
added for now but more will be placed on the site soon.
