Description: As a printmaker, my principal MEANS of expression is the computer. Ironically,about 10 years ago, I was what might be called “a raging luddite”. I was totally averse to computers on every level. An “epiphany” occurred when I found that, with the FREEHAND use of the computer, one could develop works of a traditional nature just as when utilizing traditional mediums and methods. The computer also afforded a great sense of experimental freedom due to its capacity to create multiple versions or return to earlier states of any given work. This freedom has also allowed me to synthesize my drawing painting and printmaking into one act, a direct conduit from subjective cognition to the picture plane.
