Where Art works for Bird Conservation
Welcome to my world. It is an eclectic mix of birds, bird conservation, and my art.
I draw. I write. I am a printmaker who loves etching, monotypes, and now I am experimenting with green printmaking. Birds inspire my art. So, I work to protect them by connecting people to their importance to us .
Matters of the heart
At Art Trends Gallery
A monotype is an original print that goes beyond a tradition etching. I explore natural elements in two and three dimensions using of the etching press.
I view these pieces as stretching the original print to achieve the multi-dimensions of texture and depth that exemplify my perception of nature. The idea is to combine natural elements such as leaves, I have found with an inked, or drawn images on Plexiglas then use my French Tool Press to create the artwork on 100% rag paper. The majority of the monotype is built on the etching press.
My new monotype is titled Connections. It is the first of three monotypes. Look for the other two in a couple of months
