My work is drawn in ink using micron drawing pens, a dip pen and India ink, dry brushing with micron ink, and occasionally a marker or graphite on either watercolor or drawing paper.
I make linoleum block prints. I carve my original design into a block of linoleum, print it with black oil ink onto white archival paper, then hand-paint the result with transparent acrylic inks.
Surreal ballpoint pen drawings on milky transparent mylar film, often infused with social and political commentary. Graphite and charcoal smearing techniques used to blend the drawing with watercolor wash.

Detailed, hand-pulled Etchings/Aquatints on metal plates created using traditional intaglio methods. The resulting prints are often selectively hand colored with acrylic ink and/or watercolor.

Pulp painting is a process using pigmented paper pulp as a painting medium. The pigmented pulp is applied, freely or through a stencil, onto a freshly formed sheet of handmade paper.
Techniques include monotypes, collagraphs & screen prints, many in combination. I think of my work as an uncommon look at everyday objects. All work printed by the artist; editions of 25 or fewer.
