Created while teaching at Wildacres retreat center in Little Switzerland NC. This is a hand printed Whiteline with hand applied linear details. This may be found at OurayTrails and Tales in Ouray Colorado.
Stylistically my work pays homage to the sensibilities of 1920’s photography, the introduction of Eastern composition championed by Arthur Wesley Dow and regionalist art highlighting the confluence of man and his environment. Thematically the art focuses on constants across time: hope, love, belonging and loss.
The process of choosing the appropriate substrate for an idea, drawing, carving, inking, layering and hand printing combine science and human expression brilliantly.My hope is the work will inspire and engage the imagination.
