I came to printmaking later in life. I had missed having anything to do with it twenty years earlier when I went to art school. But in mid-life I started studying at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston and I fell in love with it. Printmaking, particularly monoprints are a perfect match for my personality. Monoprinting is not an exact science. There are a lot of variables when printing. You can never totally control the final outcome. I think that is what makes this process so exciting.

I now have over twenty years creating images within the confines of the printing process. Which, I don’t find confining at all.
