I have been printmaking for the last twenty years. The first time I was exposed to printmaking was in Prague, Czech R. After graduating from Ontario College of Art and Design I got accepted to a post-graduate illustration Program at the Academy of Applied Arts in Prague Czech R. Little did I know that the approach to illustration in Czech R. is through printmaking. On the first day of my studies I was lead down to the basement of the academy where all the old presses were stationed. The setting was archaic. I felt like I had stepped back in time. This is where it all started; my love affair with printmaking!!!
