It is our hope that this site will enable photogravure to achieve the status that it deserves as one of the most beautiful and important of the photographic processes.

    I teach Photogravure at Savannah College of Art and Design. We have been teaching photogravure since 2000 and as an institution we are committed to the practice. We have campuses in Lacoste, Savannah, and Atlanta. I love this site. It is an invaluable resource for my students.
    I learned how to pull gravures at Crown Point Press. For two years I worked as a master printer at Flatbed Press. I pulled some photogravures and direct gravures with several artists there as well as pursuing my own work. My work is represented with Flatbed Press and with The Poissant Gallery in Houston. Most recently I made a series of Gravures based on the Palace Alhambra in Grenada.
    At SCAD I have continued creating Photo and Direct Gravures with photographers and painters as a Master Printer.
    I love this site. It seems to represent some very fine work.
    Thank you.
