I have always been fundamentally attracted to line and value and how the variation of one will affect the other. I use a multitude of lines to describe form, to emulate light and shadow. Though I my experiment with other techniques and media, I always come back to this form of drawing. It provides for me a fresh way of viewing the world along with challenges to overcome. From woodcut to scratchboard to pen and ink to engraving, the use of line tells a story. It communicates a feeling between the image and viewer, and when successful, there is nothing more satisfying or magical.
