These monoprints are my most recent work. I love the sensual process of creating a monoprint. I begin with a glass plate that I then finger paint a image on to it. I refine the image with a variety of tools like sticks, wedges and other edge tools. When the image looks done, I put it on the steel bed of the printing press and turn the crank handle, pressing the image onto a sheet of paper. After that I hang the image to dry. Later I go back into the image with drawing tools to pickup lines, shapes and forms that enrich the image.

This year I've been collaborating with different artists. The result of those collaborations is now emerging. My friend Tolley Marney, a sculptor in Palm Springs (and a cowboy), creates beautiful sculptures of horses using recycled steel. Working from his images I created a series of original works on paper at A-6 (the printmaking studio I joined last year).
