Most of my days include hikes in the forested mountains I call home. I am intrigued by the constant changes I see on the same hikes: plants emerge, bloom and die; they glow in sunset, fade in mist, bend in wind and rain. I bring the metal plates that I etch and engrave into the woods with me so I can create the art on location. i make multiple plates for full color and hand=wipe and hand print each one.
