My etchings are visually pictorial and transform selected snapshots from family photograph albums into strong drawn images with a stylistic Japanese format, but with closer inspection reveal a sense of wit and humour.  The prints capture moments from the past, with the inevitable knowledge of the future, applying a personal imprint on a past image.  I use my work to convey a common point in our past that defines who we are, regardless of nationality.
