Explore creative options of printing a plate with a press. Starting with monoprint, the method of painting an image on a plate and printing the resulting image on paper with printing inks, you will be familiarized with a printing press, and further learn to manipulate your plate with engraving methods, such as dry-point and etching on copper. You will be encouraged to experiment by combining the learned techniques of monotype and etching in one print or be free to focus on mastering one of the techniques.

Science and nature inspire my art. My work investigates form and pattern in nature, organisms, and mechanisms. I also investigate the relationship of Man with Nature. I create dialectic between natural structures and man-made constructions. This opposition appears formal in contrasting organic shapes against Euclidean, rigid structures, but underneath is often a commentary on the relationship between human society and the natural environment.
