Monotype Prints

The watercolour monotypes are created by painting onto a plexiglass plate and then transferring the image to paper through the aid of a hand pulled press. As you can only pull one print from the plate, each piece is unique. The earliest known monotypes were made by the Italian artist Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione as early as 1640. Edgar Degas, Paul Gaugin, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso and Jasper Johns have all used the monotype technique.

Carborundum Prints

In the carborundum printmaking process, acrylic medium and carborundum (silicon carbide) are mixed to form a gritty paste which is painted onto a plate. Once dry, the plate is inked and placed on a press bed with damp paper on top. The pressure from the press transfers the inked image to the paper as well as embossing the paper to create a velvety, highly textured image. Small editions can be printed from a carborundum plate.

Collagraph Prints

A collagraph is a print made from a collage of various materials glued onto a plate. I use mat board plates with materials such as fabric, paper, eggshells, rice, aluminum foil and other found objects glued onto them. The plates are inked with oil-based etching ink and printed with a hand-pulled press to transfer the image onto paper. The images are richly textured and nuanced.
