Fruits of Love
My mezzotints are an examination of light and dark using the still life as vehicle to study how glass and simple objects can create an atmosphere of mystery and meaning by manipulating the shadows and reflections of the objects and their surroundings.
A Wisconsin native, I began my work in intaglio and monotype after joining a private print workshop, AGB Graphics, and currently work out of my home studio in Madison, WI. I am known internationally for my mezzotint work and they have been consistently accepted into national and international print shows, both juried and invitational. I am a member of several print societies across the US and exhibit regularly in their member exhibitions. My work has been included in the International Mezzotint Festival in Russia every biennial since its pre-conception in 2009. I am also the coordinator of the annual mezzotint exchange for the International Mezzotint Society and was recently named its Director.
