Description

“I created these plates from a shrub living in the Ralston Arboretum in Raleigh, NC, back when the arboretum had cats that lived there and would roam the gardens with me.

I am in the process of printing the edition of 95 hand-pulled, signed and numbered intaglios and no more than 9 proofs.”

Title remains with the artist.

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.
