"I created this series of etchings and engravings entitled WAR STORIES FOR CHILDREN AND ART STORIES FOR ADULTS to celebrate the founding of PRESSWERK EDITIONS by Dieter and Deborah Grund in 1978. The publishing date became 1999 instead of the anniversary date of 1998 because of the eventual scale of the project. What initially began with the idea of a limited edition of one or two prints quickly escalated into a limited edition folio of twenty intaglio prints with chine collé and hand-colouring and took 2 years to complete. This work was truly a labour of love and learning sparked and fanned by friendship."
