As the saying goes: “A jack of all trades is a master of none, but often times better than a master of one.” I like to experiment in many creative forms, professionally as a software engineer and for fun I have experimented with Photography, Pottery, Writing (prose and poetry). My current big experiment is Printmaking. I am the owner of D.M. Penny Press, a printmaking studio in Manchester NH. The studio has been in operation since 2015 and I do offer limited memberships for experienced prinkmakers looking for access to a press and other equipment. If interested see the membership info on the web page.
I wrote two poems, the first is titled Escape and the second in titled Trapped. The first poem is from my perspective and it is about the memory of a person from my past that I would like to forget. I am lamenting the memory cannot escape my mind. The second poem is from the perspective of the memory, she would like to be forgotten, but she is trapped. This block print represents that memory.
