Art and Life

Welcome to Screen Expressions. The focal point of my art career for over fifteen years has been fine art screen printing. I have pioneer the use of a non-toxic screen printing process using materials that are beneficial to the environment and one's health.

The imagery in my work is a journey through my life experiences and I hope you enjoy journeying through the work. The style and color palette I've used has changed over the years. In earlier years black and white imagery predominated, but this limited color palette has morphed in to an expressionistic use of color.

I tend to work in series of images related to a theme, usually with a humanistic context. Art and life are intertwined. Art is a medium for expressing my feelings about a broad range of events in past that continue to shape my life today. I am available to teach individual and group workshops in the areas of screen printing, - remove to another place

My Work

For the past twenty years I have lived in the U.S., Ireland and Finland. During this time I taught art and screen printing in second and third level educational institutes and pursued my own work in a studio setting. My imagery and art work tend to deal with social themes and I create a body of work that reflect that theme. Two series of prints can be viewed presently on this web site and adding the other series are in the works.

"Cruel Love" and "My school Days"

  • Missing Children
