More Etchings!

back in college i began a project referred to as Spaces To Be Seen (before change). this series i have continued to contribute to throughout the years. it is essentially a documentation of places that have greatly moved me, some that i have not yet been able to experience but witnessed through the photographs and descriptions of others.  these are places that climate change continues to impact in a negative way and these images are documentations of the potential loss.

monotypes




i've been having a lot of fun teaching a woodcut and monotype/monoprint class for the past several weeks, today i spent the day in the shop just having fun with monotypes! its been a while since i simply played with oil based inks on plexi glass, but it was just as much fun as i remembered.


I started with simple stencils and flats


then moved on to more abstract techniques

First Pass


Second Pass


i ran this through the press a total of four times but i don't have the shots. wonderful to start from scratch and build a one of a kind print slowly, then be able to leave with a complete print at the end of the day.
