I am interested in the way I see an image in my mind. What matters to me first – is the idea behind the work, then comes the technicalities in executing the idea.

I choose the platinum process because it lends itself to a timeless interpretation of the past. The process is an antique printing method developed in the late Nineteen Century and is archival. I strive for the highest quality in my printmaking techniques. I use a large format camera and contact print the original 8 X 10 negative to get all the detail and richness of tone in the print’s surface.

The nature of my work is to capture an essence of a subject that will hold up over time. It has to have a real truth to it, a substance that can be interpreted by successive generations.
