Artist Statement: The conceptual basis of my art is an inquiry into the juxtaposition of ordinarily unrelated images to create a new metaphor, analogy, or simile relevant to recent experienced events or observations. While my work is created under the guise of developing a personal iconography, it draws upon iconography from cultural and social sources and is fundamentally accessible to an open audience.

Over the last two years I developed a Station of the Cross series, inspired by walk through Canterbury Cathedral almost daily for four months in 1993. The presented images are computer generated photo-etchings. It is this merging of digital imaging and traditional printmaking media that I am currently exploring.
