About the Book
The Magic of Monoprinting will take you on a journey through my world of monoprinting using plants, stencils and found objects. With plenty of photos but also descriptions of my printmaking processes, you will be inspired to create.
Monoprinting is my passion. This book gives insights into my art practice of monoprinting with dozens of beautiful photos of my colourful monotypes. There's an extensive gallery of photos of my artworks from my 'Conservation of the Species' series as well as other monoprints I've been working on in the past 2 years.
In my art practice I work with paper and natural fibres, forming my materials into sculptural works, using them as natural dyes for paper or incorporating them in my printmaking processes. I specialise in the printmaking technique of monoprinting, using plant materials, stencils and other found objects to develop images on paper, creating layers of rich colour and flowing marks. The images and objects I create seek to describe my perceptions and relationship with the natural world, rather than try to replicate it in a representational manner.
