My first print was created in 1977, and I am grateful to have learned from a Master Printer who taught, not only basic old-school skills, but also advance techniques such as making etching grounds from scratch and mixing my own inks. Within the last few years there has been a shift within the printmaking community towards safer, non-toxic methods. Even me, and old-school printer, has embraced this new world. My current etchings are created using the safer salt+copper sulfate solution. Most recently I’ve been making Moku Hanga woodcut prints. This Japanese technique involves using water based pigments, dampened paper, and a hand held baren instead of a printing press.
