Artist Statement
My mezzotints are an examination of light and dark using primarily the still life as vehicle to
study how glass and simple objects can create mystery and visual poetry by manipulating
the shadows and reflections of the objects and their surroundings.
As a printmaker specializing in etching, mezzotint and monotype, I create still life images to
express my interest in depth and light as I try to capture what is special about everyday
objects.  As a lover of drawing and painting, I turned to intaglio as a way to explore line,
shape and shadow and I concentrate on the techniques that require drawing and painting
skills as opposed to photographic or digital techniques.  This has led me to the process of
mezzotint, a technique that is experiencing a rebirth among printmakers for its rich velvety
blacks and its nontoxic process.
I am known internationally for my mezzotint work and have been consistently accepted into
national and international print shows, both juried and invitational. I am a member of several
print societies across the US and I exhibit regularly in their member exhibitions. My work is
included in several large public collections in the US.
