I am totally committed to Printmaking, Etching, Engraving. My work is about the Human Spirit. I record an emotional, invented Image of Good and Evil in the Human Condition and of Man’s Inhumanity to Man.
My life’s work is committed to understanding the process that makes one person full of love, respect, and giving, and another person, a violent bastion of hate. I add prose/poetry to my invented images.
Born in Montreal, Canada, in 1933, of mixed races, speaking three languages; French, German, and Dutch. My first nine years of life were filled with cultural upheavals; opera, classical music, literature, and then, unexpected poverty and repeated injustices.
