Welcome to my website where I have gathered together examples of my paintings and prints from over the years. I’ve always loved  to work on the surface of paper. After many years of painting watercolors I began making lithographs.The approach is the same, one makes lines and washes with pencils, pens and brushes on a surface. Instead of paper, the image is  created on a thick limestone or aluminum plate.  For me when creating a lithograph, the magic is in the wash. In both mediums when the figures are surrounded with washes they become one with the environment.  I like to explore ideas making multiple images that result in a series.  My work is both figurative and narrative. Please enjoy looking, and see if you can find the stories.
