i have been creating images since finishing art school, in 1981. My focus has always been printmaking and figure drawing. My wife Christine, who is a painter, and I ,had our studio in Maryland for 24 years, we now are building our new studio in California.
With new influences of people and geography, our thoughts and images are beginning to change from our long lived east coast experience. Change is happening, nothing is certain, watch with us as we discover our new place. Late this spring we should begin to see what our recently found seeds will grow.
By the way I have been gardening since I was child ,my real passion is life that springs from the earth....
My work is not always planned and thumbnailed, its often just organic, I am excited by the unexpected , monoprinting is just that, not always successful, some seeds just never grow. Those that do ,need to be nurtured ,here is where I work back into my prints with other media. Prunning and watering ,it really is gardening. Printing isn't always copying, for me it uniqueness.
Ink and paper, just the smell gets me , its like fresh soil, enough metaphors ,lets get this garden started....
