His intaglio images are made by creating grooves and textures below the surface of zinc or copper plates. The techniques he uses most frequently are etching, aquatinting, photo-etching, and watercolour painting.

"My original landscape etchings are bits and pieces of a familiar landscape. There is a sense of peace and solace within them, of mystery and primal longings. They are a cry for the preservation of those wild lands we need in order to know ourselves, and a celebration of our natural heritage. Printmaking, my chosen medium, is very indirect and elusive. In these intaglio prints there is a sense of the mystery of the wild lands we all need in order to better know ourselves.".
