Being a printmaker, I fell in love with fine handmade rag paper and I made the early decision to work only on "good paper". Without a real value for a well-made rag paper, many a "good drawing" will be destine to live a cursed life on inferior materials. Fine paper is sensual and respects the ink. 


Drawing is the most fundamental of the visual formal elements, and the foundation of a visual language. Drawing is essential for learning how "to see". Make your drawings deserving of fine paper they are on.


These works are varied in their medium (acrylic paint; charcoal; india ink; ink wash; printing inks on monotypes, lithographs, etching; colored pencil; water color; pencil, charcoal, and mixed media), and they also have a variety in themes and media, but all of these works are on paper.
