"Branches, Humphrey Head and Tree Near Second Beach are from a series exploring the landscape where I grew up in the Pacific Northwest. These images take a subjective view of the landscape – looking up – to suggest a “child’s eye” sense of scale or perspective.
The prints were made by painting with black watercolor on a thin polyester plate, which was then printed on a press. Unlike oil monotypes, the image must be completely dry before being printed. This means that it can be developed over many hours, even days. I use additive and subtractive processes to make the images, putting down washes and marks that are allowed to dry before being lifted and revised by re-wetting the plate."
