After many years as a graphic designer, I relearned relief printmaking with Sabra Field who had also been my first employer post-college. Due to several visits to Tuscany with Sabra, some of my prints have an Italian theme. Others reflect my domestic life, my love of landscape and figures, especially birds and other animals.  

Crows show up periodically. I find them fascinating for several reasons: they are intelligent and can make tools, they live in family groups and are loyal to that group, they nearly always mate for life, they alert their flock for opportunity, warn their flock of danger and grieve their dead. Because they mate for life, there was a period in American history when a pair of crows would be carved above the front door of the home of newlyweds as a talisman for a long marriage.
