Description: Monoprint Collages

Works are made from a combination of 4-6 different plates using a variety of fine art printmaking techniques from collagraph, linocut and silkscreen. The prints utilize many experimental and non traditional methods in the inking and printing process making each print unique and individual. The prints are then hand cut before using chine-colle techniques to collage the work together. This series was made while at a fellowship awarded by the EFA Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop in NYC.

Nature is very influential in my work and acts as a hidden agenda and representative aspect in my otherwise abstract work. The preservation of our environment and appreciation for nature reveals itself through my choice of materials and form. Be that from recycled found or collected objects to vaguely aerial landscapes or organic shapes that can resemble bugs or floral pods. Each work asks the viewer to stretch their imagination and invites their curiosity in a struggle to identify their marks, engaging in the creative process through the act of exploration of the Art.
