Art and Life

The focal point of my art career for over thirty years has been Fine Art Screen Printing. During this time I pioneered and promoted the use of non-toxic water based screen printing inks to eliminate the hazards associate with the medium.
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 expres- sionistic use of color in my mono screen prints and edition screen prints.
I tend to work in series of images related to a theme, usually with a humanistic focus. Art and life are intertwined. Art is a medium for express- ing my feelings about a broad range of events in my past that continue to shape my life today. I am available to teach screen printing workshops to individuals and groups. All materials and equip- ment are provided. The workshop can be held at your location or in my work space.

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 taught independent workshops, while pursued my own work in a studio. My imagery and art work tend to deal with social themes and I create a body of work that reflects that theme
