Diamonds on Paper

I love printmaking – all kinds (except for lithography!). The clarity and power of graphic work is something that I love to see in paintings (i.e. David Hockney’s 1960’s paintings).

I tend to go back and forth between painting and printmaking – they inform each other. I enjoy the change of pace, process and issues when crossing over into another medium. I bring what I learn in printmaking into my paintings.

For the last few years, screen printing has been my printmaking medium of choice. It has been a perfect medium for designing my own wall papers and exploring color interactions. I just finished printing my newest grouping of screen prints. For process photos, click here.

Each piece is 20″ x 26″, hand pulled on Canson Mi-Teintes. Be sure to look at the detail images for a surprise!
