I have been a photographer for most of my life and was introduced to printmaking a few years ago. The polymer etchings seem to be a natural extension of my work. Printmaking gives me the opportunity to expand my initial impression of an image.

Printmaking reminds me of my days printing in the darkroom. There is a similar feeling of anticipation and excitement when you pull out a photo that has completely developed in the tray to when you pull back the blankets and see your first print on the etching press.
