Stop by, check it out and let me know what you think.  I’ll be adding more images soon, but as always, if you are interested in any of my work don’t hesitate to contact me through a comment.  Since I make multiples I may still have the print you’re looking for in stock.

Have a great day!

A new fused glass relief print inspired by my hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I’ve been thinking a lot about growing up there recently, since my wife and I are moving back in about a month. I can’t wait to be home developing an arts education organization and holding community workshops in both print and glass. I’ll keep everyone posted about our progress.

Have a great day.

New Print Pics…. Finally

S0… A few months ago I came back from a winter residency at Penland School of Crafts and said I would post pictures of the finished piece soon.  Well… Life got pretty busy when I got home and I never got to it… Until now.

Since I got back from North Carolina I’ve also printed a number of newer pieces.  I’ve included a picture of one that was just featured at an exhibition here in Portland.

Printmaking Residency

Great News!  I’ve been accepted into the winter printmaking residency at Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina.  I’m really excited to spend two weeks in January working on a larger scale woodblock print, have access to state of the art facilities and meet other printmakers.  I’ll make sure to post pictures of my trip and my work as they both unfold.
Here is one of my newer prints

New Prints!

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything, but I wanted to share some new works in progress.  Here are a couple of woodblocks I plan on printing this weekend.  My life has been extremely busy over the past year, but I hope to begin a more steady blog presence again.  I’ve also changed the look of the site and would appreciate any feedback.  Let me know what you think.

Do You Think + Nice Hat

Do you Think

Nice Hat

I finished a couple more drawings recently and am pretty pleased with the direction they are heading.  The exercise itself of automatic drawing is such an wonderful thing, in that it allows my imagination to run wild at the end of a work day, or soon before I turn in for the night.  I’ve been finding that after longer sessions of drawing before I go to bed I have much more vivid and unusual dreams, which I love.  I’m still working out how a narrative can fit into the grand scheme of things, or if it should at all.  We’ll see.  That seems like something down the road.

Photographs

I’ve been inspired by Nicole of NMNPHX “Photo Friday” post.  Because of her I decided to share some of my photos and to take new ones.  I took these a while ago as an exploration into color, layering and pattern in digital imagery and never showed them to anyone.  My intent was to “paint” with the camera lens by taking photos of collaged paper scraps.  I’ve been straying away from my traditional printmaking recently with my drawing project and working on a series of larger scale collages for an exhibition coming up in December, but I think it’s good to take a break.  Embarking on projects involving different mediums keeps my creativity fresh and may lead to technical cross over down the road. Anyways, here is the first of three series of photographs I’ve taken.

Have a great day.
