The New Directions Art Gallery

This is a collection of print editions done with the processes I have developed over
the years. It is to show that editioning can be successfully done with the new
technology, just as easily as with traditional methods. Information on each print is
provided as it was given to me.

He came to work with me in 1992 and was already known as a most inventive and capable printer while living in Ontario. He has printed for many artists in eastern Canada and some coming from Europe. Many of the prints I posses came from Alan who has printed for artist like Chris Bacons' plover.
