Artist's Statement:
My work is mostly figurative. The subjects of my etchings are landscapes, interiors, still lives, figures absorbed in a quiet activity. Some my etchings are abstract. My landscapes are the expression of an emotion caused by what I see but also informed by memory, and personal history. I am also sensitive to the appeal of figures in a landscape, to the interactions between that figure and the surroundings and other figures (if the subject is not alone).
My etchings are inspired by people and landscapes of countries I lived in (France, Ireland, New England) or visited like Greece or India. I sometimes do etchings after works of great artists I admire.
