I have lots of work in flat files and bins.
I’m very excited to share with you a wonderful review of my show by Mark Jenkins of the Washington Post. My review is towards the bottom.
Whenever I have an art show, the attendees always ask me about my work, “is it a watercolor?” Is it a pastel?” To which I have to give a long explanation how I exactly produce a print. It is a complicated process that involves carborundum, acrylic paint and gesso. Since I am by profession an arts educator, I find it best to walk people through my process by showing them step-by-step on how the plate is done and how I apply the ink.
On Sunday, March 16, from 3-5pm, at the Washington Printmakers Gallery, I will demonstrate two methods; carborundum intaglio and mono prints. Both methods use one plate and three colors.
If children are in attendance, I will have them create a Styrofoam print. Children love printmaking because it gives them an element of surprise that they don’t get in a painting. The exhibit in the adjacent gallery of my students’ prints exemplifies their love of this medium.

I’m very excited to announce my upcoming show at the Washington Printmakers Gallery titled New Life. The show runs from February 26th through March 30th with an opening reception on Saturday, March 1st from 1-4PM. Along with my most recent work, I am proud to be presenting a small collection of prints of my students from Grace Episcopal Day School, where I have taught art for the past 31 years .
