Pressure prints! Thanks to Leslie Smith at @sawtoothschool for adapting the technique to an etching press. In a nutshell: fully inked plexi plate on bottom, paper in middle, design plate on top. Tricky to line up edges of the inked plate and the design plate with the paper sandwiched between them, but still works great! ➡️ 1st photo is after one run through press, 2nd photo adds a ghost of inverted design, 3rd photo is the design plate.

So happy to catch the final days of the Beyond Ornament exhibit at @greenhillnc Lots of provocative art jewelry pieces, but I think these kinetic dragonflies by @metalbug00 were my favorite. So intimate and whimsical. Through Nov 4.

New drypoint print coming off the press. Added a relief roll to this one for added depth. #drypoint #printmaking #drypointetching #printmakers #intaglio #intaglioprint #etching #sawtoothschool #inktober2018

Took a fantastic drypoint workshop with @ellen.heck today at #sawtoothschool. Lots of experimentation with mark-making and inking techniques.

Learned an interesting monotype technique at @sawtoothschool Print Group last night. Manipulate liquid pigment (we used Akua) on the plate and then brayer on black intaglio ink thickened with magnesium chloride powder. Run it through the press on very light pressure. Makes some interesting effects.

Working on a John Cage inspired, chance-based Valentine’s book project for my daughter’s class at school. Learned the technique in a great class with book artist Leslie Smith at @sawtoothschool So happy to have a family who will test drive my projects! ❤️📚

I am overwhelmed by the beauty and creativity of January’s #areyoubookenough submissions. It was an honor to participate this month. Thank you for the inspiration and warm community @inkandawl It was most difficult to select 9 favorites! 📚

Here is my #darkness book for the #areyoubookenough challenge. When I was considering the idea of darkness, the image of a dark forest kept popping up in my mind. At the same time, I started to think about all the darkness living inside of us. So, my idea was to present the two concepts of darkness as a single image, a dark forest living inside. A tunnel book structure seemed like the perfect way to show the deepening dark. I digitally layered photos of the woods behind my house for the tunnel image. For the end papers, I used images of antique medical illustrations layered with more photos from my woods. I couldn’t decide on a closure, so I went with simple deer suede laces in keeping with the forest idea. This book was fun to make, and I look forward to future #areyoubookenough challenges!
