Artist Statement

October 31, 2011... I am about to edition the eighth image for my "White Flower Suite” which I began in February 2011.   The first four were included in "It’s in the Fine Print” exhibition at Brackenwood Gallery, Langley WA.   The flowers were from botanical watercolor studies that I have painted over the years.  Most were never completed and ended up in a drawer until I saw that I had quite a bit of useful information to use in etching!

I was introduced to printmaking in 1996. I was invited by Island International Artists, Anacortes WA to take an etching workshop taught by print artist, Richard Stauffacher.  I discovered that etching gives my work the look I’d been searching for; a medium that combines the precision of drawing, the transparency of watercolor and the richness of oil paint.  I love the process of printmaking and bought a press and set up my own print studio in 1998.
