About the Work
I began to imagine ways in which all of life's experiences, idioms, belief systems, etc. could be represented from an enophile's point of view using wine-inspired imagery and vocabulary. The phrases don't simply accompany the art -- they precipitate it.
About the Technique and Printing Process
A digital image is created from an original drawing. Subtle color, contrast and hue adjustments are digitally applied to produce a customized marriage of hand-drawn and digital artistry. The printing process is a patented liquid ink printing technique using a four color process at 200 lines per inch on 100 lb museum quality paper. It replicates offset printing better than any other digital press. Each individual print is subsequently enhanced with hand-applied color by the artist making every image slightly unique.
