I love paper, books, and printmaking in all forms. I imagine the worst part of not being alive will be, not touching and seeing material in all its tactile beauty. I make artist books using my type-setting press and linocut prints using my etching presses.
I learned to hone my skills from fellow printmaking artists at the Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop. I went on to set up a printshop in the Bronx called Plotzing Press. My work evolves with each print and artist book that propels me forward. I learn through each step of the process bursting at the seams with what I can make.
Part of my printmaking practice is as a teaching artist. I teach printmaking outdoors. I feel it is important to give printmaking workshops in my Bronx borough to multi-generational participants so that all levels of life experience can be shared with one another.
