My work deals with exploring the tangible presence of everyday objects in my immediate environment. My art is inspired by both my imagination and memory; places I visit, details of objects, landscapes, and even correspondence from friends.
I create prints in a representational style and for the last few years I have focused my efforts on producing works using a technique called mezzotint. The mezzotint technique lends itself to the exploration of form and modulation using values of light and dark.
As an artist and printmaker, I work out of my own studio where I print my editions on a small, but very dependable Brandt press. Born and raised in Quebec, Canada, I have lived for a number of years in the U.S., and I now reside in Latham, ten miles north of Albany, New York.
