My work

My usual medium for my art is Gum Bichromate. Gum is a photographic printing process from the 1880's. Many have said it is a combination of printmaking, watercolor and photography. Working in Gum Bichromate enables me to become more engaged in the creation of my work. There is emotionality to the gum print, like images you remember from dreams or scenes from your memory. There is a mystery to the print that allows the viewers to find their own meaning in the image. For me Gum Bichromate is very meditative, hands-on, manipulating and creating an image. While working on a print, layer-by-layer, day-by-day, I become intimate with the image as it ingrains upon my mind and heart and soul.
