I use printmaking techniques to create the images and backgrounds for my larger collaged pieces. For these smaller compositions, the printmaking is the finished work.
Monotypes on Masa rice paper are one-of-a-kind compositions created with acrylic paints and printing by hand; some incorporate hand painting and collage.
Digital limited edition prints are created as original digital compositions. I incorporate close-up photos of my own textile backgrounds with original photos of natural scenes. These are also collaged works, but all of the collaging happens in the digital file. I print editions of only 20 of each image.
