Recently I have been exploring printmaking. The whole field has changed completely since I first experimented with printmaking in college. There are so many less toxic ways to make images… This piece, Swing! was first created as a brush and ink painting. The painting was scanned and printed out onto acetate in order to create a solar plate. In addition to inking the plate with black, I applied colored inks to to raised areas of the plate.
Swing! is part of a children’s book that I have been developing.
