monoprint SUMMER SUN

nature

To see a world in a grain of sand and a heaven in a wild flower Hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour. -William Blake

In all my work, nature is my muse.

musings

The world of events is a kalidoscope to ponder philosophically. Creating art from the media headlines is an opportunity to combine deep reflection with aesthetic freedom.

monoprint WATER GARDEN

abstract

Coming from an established practice in abstract painting, my printmaking practice is another medium in which to separate image from content providing an opportunity for the viewer to experience something entirely for its own sake without need for intellectual interpretation.

monoprint RAINY DAYS

still-life

Creating still-life is an exercise in romanticism. Getting beyond the exact paramenters of the image is the arena in which innovation and originality can prevail.
