Having had a long-standing pre-occupation with the depiction of landscape and figure imagery through printmaking and painting, I wanted to explore a way to document various stages of observational themes with personal narrative and text. A format I use is a combination of traditional and minimalist bindings, mostly cloth bound and sewn with Somerset, Rives, Zerkal or Fabriano paper, executed non-intrusively as to represent the content to it’s full advantage. There is a continuity in the various sequences developed, to echo earlier heavily coded language as in the etching series of ‘Angel City’.
