The work begins with drawn studies or photographs. I choose the subsequent print medium - the crisp etching line, the soft lithograph line, the rich drypoint line, or the gravure method – to reinforce the meaning intended within the image.
My subject matter is the natural form - the overlooked, or less remarked. I am drawn to these forms either by a visual attraction, or by the subject’s resonance with those historical, ethical or environmental matters which interest me - or both. I give these small and vulnerable remnants of nature an iconographic stature, to reinforce the importance of their placement in the natural world.
