“The subject matter for my prints presents itself to me during my daily walks. Depending on my frame of mind, the impulse for an etching is driven by a myriad of sources: the dramatic play of light and dark, contemplating an individual in a specific environment, shape or the textural, structural, and ornamental aspects of architecture.”
