Handmade prints and paintings, all one of a kind.

There is something to be said about the magic and the sensuality of creating work by hand. Whether it is pushing the chemicals from a 19th century photo process into a contemporary 21st century application, or moving the ink around when prepping a plate for the intaglio press ... such a joy.

But I confess, my biggest zen returns on the rare occasion when I find myself engulfed in the smell of oil paint and turpentine (childhood memories :-).

Gum Bichromate Portraits

The gum bichromate technique is a 19th Century photo process that uses chemicals and UV exposure to create an original photo-like print. #madscientist  😎 Watch the video at the bottom for a quick intro on gum bichromates, as well as the story of what happened when I exhibited them as a social experiment ...
