As a non-mother, a childless woman, I have had to come to terms with not raising children.  I sometimes feel as if my children are ghosts – I have glimpses of them in my dreams, my artwork, and in the eyes of others. The dog is my constant surrogate self portrait, and here the ghost rubs up on her side, a loving gesture, felt but unseen.

This piece is a "relief engraving.” It is in the block print or relief family of printmaking, which refers to two surfaces, one lower than the other, so that the highest surface prints. I hand carve each image with small but tough tools called burins, or gravers. The remaining surface is rolled with ink and pressed through the printing press. Each print taken from the plate is part of an edition, and numbered. My limited editions are always under 100 since they are inked and cranked by hand on my printing press.  Printed on 100% Cotton Rag Paper.
