About my Printmaking

I specialize in intaglio printmaking. Etching and aquatint, chine-colle and hand-coloring add to my style of hand-pulled prints. My subject matter is urban images and cityscapes of my favorite subject: the City of Chicago.

I grew up on the city's North Side near the lake and spent my early years with the lakefront high-rises and neighborhood parks as my backdrop. My pastimes included pen and ink or pencil drawings of these scenes.

Since 1995 I have been a member of the Chicago Printmakers Collaborative, under the tutelage of master printmakers such as Deborah Maris Lader, Margaret Buchen, Meg Sterling and Duffy O'Connor. I have enjoyed a relationship with the Illinois Artisans.

My work is on display at the Chicago Printmakers Collaborative in Lincoln Square and the H. Marion Gallery in Wilmette. I am also represented at Sawbridge Studios in Hubbard Woods (Winnetka). My note cards are sold at most of these locations as well as the Chicago Architectural Foundation shop on Michigan Avenue at Jackson.
