I work with etchings and mezzotints. Their deep tones and process- •
heavy nature force me to spend long periods of time with each print.
I use this time to create a space for creatures that are too often
overlooked. Drawing my inspiration from mythology and the natural
world, with a focus on native insects, I enjoy exploring the grey areas
that dance between good and evil, while revealing the unconventional
beauty that can be found in insects. etching
