Statement from the Artist:
My recent prints are mainly monotypes handmade in my studio on my etching press. They highlight a blend of art, science and mathematics. My imagery is based on designs that are results of experiments using mathematical equations that I write for a computer program called Cinderella. I edit, add or subtract color and create transfer films that I then print on moist Fabriano paper one at a time until I get a good impression.
