''Most of my prints are made with the drypoint technique which was a natural choice due to my passion for creating works of art with fine details. Drypoint lets me work consciously with form and values trough line as the creator.
It has allowed me to develop my cross hatching technique which has been my primary way of understanding planes and volume. I hand prepare all my plates before they are ready for engraving because I want to take part in the whole process of creating my prints from start to finish. The engraving process itself is something that requires my full attention. It removes me from everything but the present moment where I get lost in chasing my impression of nature.
After the engraving is completed the plates go through an inking process where I work primarily with tarlatan, a sheer cotton fabric in open plain weave, to remove the excess ink. When the right amount of ink is removed, high quality dampened paper is placed on top of the plate and then hand pulled through a deep pressure press.
The beauty of this technique is that no two prints will be exactly the same and will present original little works of art.''
