In 2004 he had a major exhibition at the Worcester Art Museum together with Hamaguchi Yozo, who like him excels in the difficult genre of the mezzotint, a drypoint technique, which is very demanding and difficult to do really well. His earlier mezzotints depict shapes - branches, ropes and wooden objects presented in three-dimensional form on paper. His recent works include bright colours an gold and silver foil.
