A Monotype is really a painting done by the artist, in my case with lithography inks, onto a printing plate. This painting is then transferred onto 100% rag paper through an etching press. I work on a drawing composition first, then use that composition as a basis for creating a series of works repeating or changing colors and design elements as I go. Some images may be similar to each other, but each is painted onto the plate freeform by my own hand, with ever-changing color and technique. There is no edition, each piece is unique.
