Making my images is a long process. It always begins with seeing the perfect shot, capturing the moment, working in the digital darkroom and it comes full circle when I get to print the image. Hand printing has become a great passion of mine and especially copper etching. It takes days to create each plate and print the editions. Master gravure artist Lothar Osterburg has been my mentor. Learning from him is a true privilege. After hours in the studio the first print is always the most exiting.
