Matted framed original monoprint on cotton paper
"My work has a natural vernacular and innate connection to nature, it conveys a thoughtful intuitive balance between color, texture and tactile rhythms. The viewer is invited to look closer and be transported into layers of unexpected assembled repetitions of organic shapes in an atmosphere of open space.
My monoprints are created using collagraph plates and various materials. The collagraph plates are constructed with modeling paste, string, palm hair, fabric, paper, wallpaper, wood, gloss medium and gel medium. The collagraph plates are used as backgrounds for pieces or to transfer images to cut shapes of paper. They are combined with various diverse inked materials then printed in multiple layers on 100% cotton handmade archival paper. The resulting original image is the only one of its kind and cannot be reproduced."
