I am a printmaker specializing in the traditional intaglio processes - engraving, etching, aquatint, and mezzotint. Most of my prints are line etchings with aquatint. I use Hahnemulhe German etching paper and Charbonel French oil-based etching inks. I do all of my prints on copper plates which I create with manual tools (etching needles, scrapers, burnishers, roulettes, etc) and produce my prints on my Takach press.
My art is representative and I enjoy drawing and printing old structures such as those found in Europe, especially Italy and Venice, and the Indian Pueblos of the Southwest.
Here are some thumbnails of prints of Venice. I did these based upon my Venice trips of 2004 and 2005. During these trips I retraced the steps of J. M. W. Turner, J. A. M. Whistler, and Thomas Moran during their 19th century visits to Venice. All three artists were great etchers that I admire. Please click on the thumbnails for larger views and more information about the prints.
Here are some thumbnails of my most recent prints.I did these etchings during the past two years and they form a series of prints devoted to the Acoma Pueblo of Northern New Mexico and to Sky City, the remote settlement located on a mesas nearly 400 ft above the surrounding desert. This is an area that I have visited frequently for over 25 years and never ceased to be amazed at the reverent subjects and views.
