Metalpointe drawings will continue to change and deepen in tone for generations.

Metalpointes are created by drawing with slender rods of sterling silver or 22k gold. The resulting line is a thin coating of metal being deposited on the surface of the paper. By repeatedly going over my marks, I build up the layers of gold and silver to develop depth and tone- Metalpointe drawings will continue to change, tarnish and deepen in tone for generations, so I call them ‘Living Drawings’.
