My monoprints show either large dark areas or are based on expressive lines. Often, I add colour in soft or oil pastel to create new compositions. For most of the pictures below I chose 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 an important  role in these woks.

Example: front and reverse of one of my monoprints
