PRINTMAKING

Much of my printmaking subject matter is based in the natural world, and represents a celebration of that vivacity. Each piece produced is about a certain creature and/or a specific detail of their existence that is interesting and compelling.  My work thus becomes the appreciation of all life’s little complexities.  Much of this intrigue revolves around bugs and insects: creatures I have always found fascinating, but which are largely ignored and considered repulsive by most people.  Drawing attention and beauty to these so-called ‘repulsive’ specimens is my way to display the amazing workings of the Earth, in things both big and small.
