I started making mezzotints in 1987, where I learned the technique during a graphic art symposium in Hungaria. Ever since I have increasingly specialized more in this beautiful black magic art (maniere noir) making my own images looming out of the dark.

Sequence of prints, made in my graphic studio in Cleve (Germany). Combinations of different printing techniques form an interconnection between the different series of work. My fascination for stones, shells, circles, holes and black and light is combined together in these simple printing experiments.

Since I followed a masterclass non-toxic printmaking in 2003 in Amsterdam I am convinced this technique is important for printmakers. This is how we can keep on working in the future in a 'green', way. Quick, easy and clean, and a lot of possibilities for experiment.

In 2016 I have been invited as Artist in Recidence in Guanlan, China. An inspiring time, in which I could work hard without distraction. During this stay I was able to print 3 new works in full edition, in which perhaps Chinese influences from the kaligraphy are visible. It was a privilege to be able to work in these fantastic circumstances.
