I combine photos and hand drawn Gothic lettering (embossing) to produce readable works that carry messages that will endure through time. Some Gothic Memorials include information specifically about the subject. Click the piece on the left for an enlargement. It is a small section of my Ocracoke Puzzle. I sometimes place graphically embossed Gothic lettering on the entire image area. Other times I place the lettering around the image. I do not use the Gothic lettering element in all my work. You will recognize the pieces that do when you view an enlargement.
The Gothic prints are not designed to be easily read. The embossing is extremely subtle. I design these pieces so future generations will have the opportunity to discover more than just a single or series of pictures. They can learn more than the photos tell.
