My current artistic practice is focused on printmaking and ceramics.  I am a member artist at Studios on High Gallery in Columbus, Ohio, where I exhibit in both mediums.  In the printmaking realm, I am most drawn to dry point etchings on acrylic and enjoy combining them with other techniques.  I also create photopolymer gravure prints using light-sensitive metal plates (developed in plain water) and my own photographs and original drawings and combining these prints with graphite and charcoal.  I am also a printmaking instructor at the Columbus Cultural Arts Center.  The instructors and students all use non-toxic methods and materials for printmaking, and we are all conscious of reusing supplies and conserving our materials to the greatest extent possible. I ink and print all of my images by hand in small editions.
