Media: Mixed-media works on paper

I’ve recently returned to printmaking after a three-year hiatus during which I began drawing from live models. Much of my latest work references the human figure. I’ve begun a series concentrating on the octopus as a study for movement and the anthropomorphization of our eight-footed pals. There are other subjects and media in my quiver, most of them interpret all things human. I’d enjoy developing a body of work highlighting the two subjects through drawing and printmaking. And most of all I’d love to have a show of some of the nudes I’ve drawn in the last three years.
