My practice of skating for over two decades etched and protruded the surfaces upon which I grew to understand my motions, emotions, and worldly perceptions. Those surfaces, while temporal, resonate in my memory to this day. In an effort therefore to capture the temporal, I have begun printmaking from the icy and simulated ice surfaces in my life.
These prints are made after brutalizing a surface through the destructive process that allows one to skate. Following which events ink or watercolor concentrates are laid onto the frozen canvas and paper pressed to the face of these vanishing records of actions in time to create one of kind memoirs of an etching existed.
