My Bio

I have been making art since childhood. I will never forget finger painting class in kindergarten. In sixth grade I won a prize for a collage I did. In JHS I learned printing, both letterpress and offset and fell in love in the early 70's I started to go to an anarchist printshop in Manhattan because they would let me use their offset press and there I realized an offset press could be used for fine art. The offset prints on this site are readymades. Waste paper used for cleaning the press that I thought were beautiful and politically evocative.


I then stated to make artist books. They are now in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art and several special library collections around the world.


In the late eighties I found that using a Targa board on a computer could simulate the properties of an offset press. By the early 90's programs were coming out that did not require the expensive Targa board.


Most of the digital work here was done from 1990-2000.


Since then I have been doing some photography and enjoying other peoples work.
