This past year has been one of experimentation with the polymer plates for etching. Changes in chemistry, metal, manufacturers and processing have created much upheaval in the world of printmaking with polymer plates. After many disappointing failures I settled in to making the correct exposures, ink choice and subject matter. I enjoyed every minute of printing and hand coloring these final images. They feel mystical and magical. I spend much time in my gardens and last season was intrigued with the thought of a view from under the leaves looking up to the sky. These images are of my squash plants and sunflowers in the Rocky Hill School's Jamie Gardener Garden Classroom.
My process includes Carbon Black and Graphite Gamblin Etching Inks , BFK Rives Printmaking Paper , Takach Polymer Plates and Printing Press, Water Based Oil Paints, Wax Based Colored Pencils, Aquacover and framing from Crestar Manufacturing.
I hope that you enjoy the slideshow of my work! The current show is at Providence Art Club, Mary Castelnovo Gallery May 13-June 2, 2017
April showers sure bring May flowers! and Mother's Day too!
Wandering my property and enjoying the beautiful blossoms puts me in that "Portrait Mood". May brings us the beauty and scents of our precious earth along with the day that honors our Mothers. I don't think that there is a better way to celebrate Family and Mothers than a Family Portrait. Give your mom a Gift Certificate for a family portrait and we can plan and gather at the best time for your family.
Certificates can be tailored to your need. Just let us know.
firstname.lastname@example.org or 401-263-4065. It is never too late!
Enjoyed a trip to Ireland this past winter, it was transformational for me....Derek Smith of Beautiful Meath tours, http://beautifulmeath.com, introduced me to the beauty, mystery and sacredness of the island. I would love to return and spend more time. Life is short, I look to enjoy every moment!

Enjoy this slide show....
At just 3 weeks old Andrew and his family visited my portrait studio. We had a wonderful time capturing the joy that he has brought to his family, his big brother was so excited! Of course, Andrew snoozed away!
I created beautiful images and designed a Keepsake Album for his family to enjoy.
We are planning for Andrew's next visit, when he is making eye contact and cooing sounds. We might even include a pumpkin in the portraits, Halloween will be on the way!
I am very pleased to have a show at View Arts in Old Forge, NY. The work is beautifully presented and was hung by Cory Card of View Arts. The show is a mix of Dye Sublimation photographs printed by Blazing Editions in East Greenwich, Rhode Island and etching, linocuts and watercolors. Framing was done by Crestar also of East Greenwich, Rhode Island. Images are descriptions of the pond life of Clear Pond located in South Colton, New York. You can visit the show at View Arts until October 16th. If you wish to purchase a piece, please contact Cory at View Arts. Prices are listed in the title of the work in the Gallery.
