The passion for printmaking began while majoring in art at Temple University.  I have been practicing, studying and teaching the form since 1996. Although the work has changed in subject matter over the years, the different series remain connected by influences of ancient and indigenous artwork, fossils, and the natural environment.

 Since September of 2014, I have been Director at 705 WEST Printshop + Gallery. 705 WEST is an environmentally conscious printmaking studio for experienced printmakers to work and exhibit fine art prints  (w: 705WestPrintshop.com).  Those interested in learning the art of printmaking can join me in my class at Abington Art Center in April, 2020.  The link to sign up: https://abingtonartcenter.org/shop/printmaking-spring-2020/
