My technique involves several media, many hours, and lots of trial and error. I first print images and textures by hand to get the background textures. These are monotypes, or one of a kind prints on paper. Then I photograph those textures with my Epson scanner and layer them digitally with my original photographs of textures, objects from nature, etc. Many hours and test prints later, I come to the point where the final combination of elements looks harmonious and the values are right...not too dark or light overall. This type of art is hard to classify, since it's technically digital printmaking, but it's a collage of handcrafted work and photography, so I am placing it into the "Manipulated Photography" category, for want of a better one. All the content is my own. I do hire a print studio to do the final printing simply because I don't have the equipment to print so large and I trust them to do high quality work.
All prints are printed with my signature and corresponding limited edition number or signed and numbered by me.

Description Of Artist's Emotional and Technical Process
Emotional Process :
All my work involves trying to get inside the essence of the thing, whether that's a bird's nest, a falling pinecone, a leaf, or an invented landscape. Nature and invention are the root of my creative process.
I layer different textures and mediums which allows me to channel my inner painter, printer, photographer, draftsman--you get the idea. The final art work is designed in photoshop.
