"Printing Place spans over the time period that I have taught printmaking at the Ottawa School of Art (2001-2018). For me teaching is a creative act. I believe in the importance of art in daily life. Works experiment with drypoint, etching, lithography, woodcut, mixed media/painting and incorporates wood printing blocks."
This exhibition celebrates a curiosity and passion for the unique characteristics found in printmaking. I find it exciting to print and work in a direct manner. The action of taking something out of its original context and putting it in a new place has always fascinated me as an image maker. The inking of the block or plate, printing on paper and the moment when the print is revealed is exhilarating.
