Why I Title My Work

There is a method behind the madness

Why I Title My Work

I have been asked why I print the title on the editions, and my reason is two-fold; firstly, as editions each piece is part of a series, and identifying them by title is a good way to note which edition the work is from. Secondly, I title the work in cursive as a nod to the lithographic artists who created such beautiful work in the 18th and 19th centuries, and often titled them similarly. I would want them to know their efforts have been fully appreciated, and copying in this case is a sincere form of flattery.
