I am originally from New Mexico. It is a mountain and high desert landscape with clear air and long sightlines. It is also a culturally diverse region with architechtural overlays of different eras of native american, hispanic and anglo culture. This has created a potent atmosphere which has stimulated many generations of artists, writers and spiritual teachers.
I became seriously interested in creating art 15 years ago as a way to balance out my life relative to my day job studying disease epidemics. I started my art career in Chapel Hill, NC and moved to the United Kingdom 12 years ago.
I have been creating etchings for the past 10 years. I am inspired to create through personal exploration and cultivation of internal images. I believe that through development of these individual images people can gain a greater spiritual understanding of their connection to all other human beings. I hope my art helps people on this journey.
Technically, I am particularly interested in the quality of line and the use of texture in etchings. I am continually trying to challenge the limits of conventional etching technique through use of fire, boiling acid and extensive reworking of each image. These techniques can be unpredictable and I enjoy the challenge working with a flowing dynamic image. Despite this fluid process, I can always feel when an etching is done.
