I have been working as a primarily printmaker, for over 20 years. Before that I worked as a painter.
I’ve always worked from nature. First pod like shapes. Then flower images.
A year ago, from last January, I was drawn to birds.
I had been spending a lot of time on the Cape. I was looking at the many birds I saw there from day to day. I had the feeling of wanting to escape, to fly away. One day I started carving birds into wood and mostly hand printing them. I haven’t stopped.
I am still working from different bird images. I spend a lot of time in the summer on my paddle board on a salt marsh. I see many beautiful birds that inspire my images.
