Artist Statement

Like many artists,
I draw inspiration from the natural world around me
...to read more about the statement

Gyotaku: "Gyotaku" is Japanese for fish rubbing. A direct relief print is made by pressing rice paper over an actual fish. The same technique is used to make prints from leaves, shells, pieces of driftwood, or anything else from nature. This medium provides a very detailed representation of the subject while still allowing for the artist's own interpretation of the natural world.


Giclée: A giclée is a fine art reproduced digital print made on an ink jet printer using archival inks and high-quality archival paper.
