Piece description from the artist
This series of Pigment Prints was inspired by a long weekend spent bike riding along the Delaware and Raritan Canal Path in New Jersey. It was a 75-mile ride birthday celebration that filled me with the beauty of the bond between three people who grew up together; my children and me.
The prints are the result of multiple processes starting with watercolor and collage. Often, digitally altered photographs are layered and drawn over in Sumi ink. The art is printed as an archival pigment print on watercolor paper. Each image is produced in a signed and numbered limited edition of only twenty-five.
These prints are evocative of shapes and colors found in Nature My artwork includes painting and photography as well as printmaking. My work is an invitation to stop for a moment, to breathe, to see the beauty in the details around us.
