My current focus is the monotype, a printmaking process made by creating a subtractive image. I work on a smooth, non-absorbent surface, made out of aluminum. An image is created by inking the surface of the metal plate with oil based etching inks and then shaping the ink with rugs, brushes or scrapers. The image is transferred onto a sheet of paper using a printing press, destroying the original artwork and creating one single print. Hence the name Monotype.

The personal nature of the monotype suited experimental artists from Camille Pissarro, Edgar Degas, to Pablo Picasso. These artists used the monotype process in unorthodox ways. I learned monotype under Bob Boreman. Their artworks inspire my own.
