Artist Statement:
My etchings depict diverse architectural imagery, exploring the structures of the urban landscape at a certain moment or time of day. I work in the printmaking technique of intaglio and find the processes of line, aquatint and soft ground lend themselves well to finding the lights and rich darks in these images.
I do not so much execute the initial idea but develop it in the course of the intaglio process. In each etching I take a journey from idea to final print.
