"A long-time artist in a variety of media, my current focus is printmaking, specifically, water colour monotypes. All my monotypes are original artworks. I do not produce or sell reproductions.
Watercolour monotypes are hand-made, original works of art, created using water colour, paper, and an intaglio press. Since the paint is applied in layers, multiple images can be created, but each will be unique depending upon which layers of paint are revealed. This process enables me to work produce a series of related, yet one-of-a-kind, images ranging from abstract to representational. Unlike etchings, it is impossible to recreate any given image. As a result, each monotype is unique and is numbered 1/1.
This process allows me to indulge my love of colour, and to explore a wide variety of styles and subject matters within one artistic discipline. Regardless of the subject matter, media, or style, the images I create are based on colour, line, shape and texture".
