The Print Renaissance in America A Revolution Book Description:

nature with a touch of the surreal. My drawings are developed for the most part from photographs cultivated from family albums, news media, the internet, or wherever I can find them. Any image that grabs my attention is adapted for my work. I don't quite understand why one image will reach out to me and another doesn't. I seem to be drawn to images of a classical nature, putting them together somewhat like a collage, in settings that are ambiguous, even to me. I really don't seek to understand their meanings, but arrange them in compositions that just seem to fit. Recently I have been experimenting with mixed media works, combining drawings, photos, manipulated computer images and also adding some collage elements. I do not burden myself with limits or rules. My goal is to get to the heart of my thought, to the final image, using any method or process that is available to me. My only advice to other artists would be: don't hesitate to use whatever means are available to you to fulfill your vision. No one owns the concept of art, or artistic processes. Take what you want, from wherever you find it, and build on it. I hope, that in the end, I have done good work."
