Printmaking

My printmaking runs the gammut of solar plate etching, monoprint and screen print. Often, I am combining these together to get the 'look' I am after.

My interest in printmaking goes back many years. In monotype, I am intrigued by the layering of colors, of the history of the piece being allowed to show through the various inks. With the use of masks and stencils, lower layers are allowed to shine through in a finished piece.

I also enjoy the simple starkness of black and white in etching, linocut and lithography. This starkness with its mysterious shadings is most evocative.

Marbling

In addition to printmaking, I have been marbling for over 25 years. I enjoy the tension between chaos and order that is inherent in this medium. My marbled papers are available on Etsy.
