Focusing on what I've termed the painted print, I use large screens and print painted color through stencils of drawings made with charcoal or brushed ink on prepared wood panels. The result can be seen as a serigraph or as a watercolor painting using the print medium simply as a brush.

Process is the focus of these prints, which tend to take on different meanings through the different painting and printing techniques employed within them. As of late I have used the same matrix with variations in the color scheme or printing techniques resulting in various effects on the original image (i.e. Bee the City 1, 2, and 3).

I live and work in Austin Texas where my wife and I perform under the musical group Bitter Birds. We also own and operate Gallery Black Lagoon in central Austin.
