Painting, Printmaking

I am an artist and illustrator, working with pen&ink and watercolour, as well as the printmaking specially etching process. Trained as a set designer, I have always been fascinated by the old stone buildings of Europe and I have long wanted to understand what it must have been like to be a mason or an architect back then. I have found that the physical process of etching is almost as much of a challenge for a printmaker as is the challenge a mason faces when striving to achieve a perfect building or carving.
