I had been exposed to original printmaking at the Kansas City Art Institute in the early 60's and later developed a unique and innovative technique, using sepia ink and applying transparent watercolor washes. The warm, sepia earth-toned ink acted as an underpainting and the result became my trademark. The small, hand-pulled editions were printed on exquisite French buff-colored rag paper and at one time could be found in over 100 galleries nationwide.
In 1980, I turned my attention to sculpture and produced my last portfolio of etchings in 1983. They were put in storage to be reintroduced at
a later time and recently, I've begun sending a limited few to select galleries.
