Alternative Printmaking

Song to Illuminate the Heart oil and mixed media on paper

I love printmaking, especially alternative methods. I studied in school all the traditional and technical methods for etching. I then began to explore other ways to get a similar result. Collagraph is my favorite. I create a textured plate, much like my paintings, then I apply oil etching ink, soak my paper and run it through an etching press. This piece has multiple drops and a transfer on top. The transfer is plastic heat from my book Image Transfer Workshop.
