I create numerous kaleidoscopic line drawings and designs that can be reused as a basis to create a series of related monotype prints. Each print, like the images of a kaleidoscope, is a unique work with varied shapes and colors. There is no edition. Each monotype is numbered 1/1.
The preliminary drawing or design is placed under a Plexiglas plate. Responding to the colors inspired by music and my inner feelings, I hand-color the plate with water-soluble media to develop the image. I do not preconceive the colors as I work. In the fluid process of creating the image, new shapes may emerge. When the image feels complete, the plate is then printed on an etching press, yielding one unique print. Sometimes, additional work is added by hand after printing.
