I make monotypes because everything that may cause trouble also keeps the image lively and dynamic. The painting tools are unlimited: rollers, fingers, rags, brushes, each with a unique gestural quality. They can add paint, or lift it, create subtle light or brilliant whites. The process is fluid, moving back and forth between application and removal of color.  The painting must be done quickly, as the inks will start to dry after few hours. When the image is complete it will be transferred to paper with an etching press.

My choice of subject matter is related to what I like about this printmaking process.  I want these images be alive, catching only a moment as light, color and shape change.
