Print Process

Each print is unique, often hand painted and from the very act of printing and my changes to each print file the new singular work emerges. Printing has become a loop, an image that exists in hard copy, a drawing, painting or gouache gets scanned into the computer and manipulated, then the actual print is usually worked by hand again and perhaps the process repeated yet again. This reworking process was part of the traditional process of printing and continued here with my modern technology. The paper and inks are archival. I keep heavy paper under my painting workstation, the drippings and borders created on the paper while I work my oil paintings make for interesting marks that I often work back into with purpose and imagery. These sometimes get scanned into the computer and again the loop starts. It has become a very informative process for my painting.
