A collection of hand designed, executed and rendered print works of art. This collection contains woodcuts, reductive prints, etchings and linocuts.
Depth Through Touch
This is a reductive print also known as a suicide print. This process is the art of taking away rather than adding to a piece. Once a color is printed I carved away that color for the next color to be printed. This is a four color print and is limited edition as the linoleum is reduced to nothing in the end. The size of this print is 18x20”.
This is a large 4x6 feet woodcut print on Japanese paper. Hand carved and hand printed as well as original design. I’m fascinated by nature and taking it to this scale was really rewarding. It is meant to be a moonlit print, as the moon is in the upper corner and the print is dark,
Frida is one of the most influential artists and women for me and my work. Her love of botanicals and vulnerability has always inspired me. This piece is a hand drawn dot pattern screen print. Frida, the magnolia flower and the elephant leaf are all their own print. The rose border is a fabric sewn on. The print was done on linen.
Dala on Repeat
This is a very large screen printed fabric. I designed the patterns and set this print up to be printed as a repeated pattern. There are four different mandalas and beneath them is a brushed design of color. This project pushed me beyond my comfort zone and took a lot of planning. The next photo shows the fabric laid out.
This is the screen printed fabric laid over a couch.
This is a linocut hand designed and hand carved.
This is a linocut designed to be a repeat pattern on all sides. Hand designed and hand carved. The next image shows what this print looks like repeated.
She Holds Repeated
Here is She Holds repeated. This print is a personal favorite of mine.
Watch My Heart
This was designed and carved at a painful growing spur for me; understanding vulnerability. I was literally watching my heart, trying to understand myself on a deeper level. This is on the products of that journey.
This is by far my most popular print. Who would actually say fuck it to a shark bite? Maybe some.
I Once Knew You
This is an etching created through a process called sugar lift. You paint the sugar directly on the plate where you want your image to be. Once that dries you apply a ground to the plate. Once the ground dries you rub off the area where you painted your image with water. Then you place your plate in the acid for the image to be bit. For this plate I placed it in the acid for 2 hours to get a really dark image. This is printed on fine archival rag paper.
This is a hand carved linocut. My love of mushrooms and patterns continues.
