Artist Statement

I have been a printmaker for the past 35 years. Recently I invented a non-toxic method of printmaking called carborundum intaglio which mimics classical etching without dangerous acids and solvents. I have a deep, spiritual connection to nature. My botanical prints my view that flowers are miracles. The serene landscape of my second home and studio on the Eastern shore is my inspiration and solace. I am a founding member of the Washington Printmakers Gallery, currently located in Silver Spring and am an on-line member of the Jane Haslem Gallery. My work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and has received numerous awards.
