Description

“I drew these plates on the Mountains to Sea trail halfway between the Glossmine Falls and Greybeard Mountain Overlooks on the Blue Ridge Parkway, on a bald with an incredible 360 degree view in 2002.  ‘Mountain Vista’ was also drawn from this place where the purple fringed orchids, yellow lady slippers and other wildflowers live.

I am in the process of printing the edition of 95 hand-pulled, signed and numbered intaglios and no more than 20 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.
