I am a practicing studio artist and my primary media are printmaking and drawing. I work in many different printing techniques including intaglio (etching on zinc plates, copper and photopolymer plate etching aka Solarplate), wood and linoleum relief prints, and monotypes. My preferred drawing media are oil pastels and oil sticks, but at times my drawings will also include additional manipulations of graphite, charcoal, and colored pencils.
I retired in 2010 after 29 collective years of teaching visual arts with 25 in the Greenville County, S.C. School System.
My teaching experiences have also taken me to Genoa, Italy where I taught at Clemson University's, Charles Daniel Center for Urban Studies in Genoa, Italy.
I have taught printmaking and drawing...
| ||Monotypes are singular printed images using one or multiple plates|
| ||Prints that are printed in multiples/limited editions of more than 5 prints.|
| ||This gallery will show works that fall into the area of mixed media and collage.
| ||Printes created from linoleum, or wood blocks. Images are printed in editions. |
| ||Monoprints are singular images similar to monotypes with the exception that there will be an element in the image that is repeatable. In my production of monoprints I have used multiple acrylic plates that are rolled with inks and in some examples one plate may have ink applied by offsetting ink from a relief block. Other examples I merge a drypoint image from a acrylic plate with a clean acrylic plate that will have inks that are rolled and manipulated as I would work a monotype plate.|
| ||Works in this Gallery are typically drawings done on paper in various media.|
