Monoprints

My monoprints can show either large dark areas or base my images on expressive lines. Often I add colour in the medium of soft or oil pastel to create new compositions. Most of these examples were made with oil based etching ink. When making monoprints, I lay a sheet of paper on to an inked surface and draw on the back of the paper which then picks up the ink from the surface below. I love the slightly smudged surface quality and liveliness of the lines. There is always a surprise, and chance plays a large role in these creations.

Example: front and reverse of one of my monoprints
