There are three new monoprints of mine in my current solo show:

Wood nymph (above) harkens back to my days of watching my children make fairy houses at the base of gnarled old trees. They were so full of imagination about the delighted sprites that surrounded them in the forest, I still hear their glee in them resonate as I walk in the woods.

Manumission means being released from slavery, an important concept that is fabulous both in a literal and metaphysical way. I originally thought of depicting this idea in broken chains, but it was rather uninteresting compositionally. Then I hit on the idea of breaking through a fence or cage to represent this idea, and this print was born. Buy the framed original here or prints and merchandise of it here.

Conservation is imperative and the rally call need for it is close to my heart. In this monoprint, I have the hourglass suggestions of time ticking away, against a green and earthy seed filled field. Please let us care for it all. Buy the framed original here or prints and merchandise of it here.

Monoprinting is something I enjoy but don’t get to do often in this way, since I don’t have a press. I’m grateful for the access to the two presses I had this past year that made these three works possible. In 2020, I hope to do more monoprinting without a printing press, and have lots of ideas for that.
