Welcome to my website.
I hope you enjoy browsing the selection of hand-made, original linocut and drypoint prints available for sale.
Having painted on and off for many years, I came to printmaking later in life and immediately fell in love with the process. English by birth, I spent 30 years living in northern New Jersey before moving to Delray Beach, FL in the spring of 2018. For more than 20 years, I have vacationed on the Pemaquid Peninsula, ME, and following retirement from a long career in communications and marketing, now enjoy the luxury of spending time in both Florida and Maine, devoting more time to my art.
I am inspired and sustained by the beauty and colors of everyday life, and printmaking challenges me to distill my reactions. There’s a wonderful tension between the contemplative action of carving a block and the excitement of seeing an image come to life on the press.
Based on photographs I take, my handmade prints are either 'relief' (carved out of linoleum or wood blocks) or 'intaglio' prints (etched into Plexiglass or Solar Plates.) I specialize in the reduction process: successively carving and adding colors to one block that once completed, can never be used again. I make my hand-pulled prints in extremely limited edition runs - usually no more than six - and no two are identical.
In mid-coast Maine, my prints are available for purchase at Small Wonder Gallery, Camden, Gifts@136, Damariscotta, and The Walpole Barn, Walpole. They have been exhibited at juried group shows at Kefauver Studio & Gallery and River Arts Gallery, Damariscotta, and displayed in solo shows at First National Bank of Damariscotta and the Rising Tide Cooperative, Damariscotta. In New Jersey, I am a member of Studio Montclair, I exhibited at a solo show at Gallery 491, Montclair, in January 2018, and my prints are available at Moss and More in Upper Montclair. In Florida, I am a member of the Delray Beach Arts League and my prints are available at The Nest of Delray.
