I am drawn to monotype’s visual language, especially the openings that come from the unwilled and accidental nature of the process.The longer the field of activity can stay open for exploration and the more ways that a plate can be printed, the better.  It’s not plotted out ahead of time. The image that begins to take shape has an aliveness that feels more like my experience in nature than a representation of a specific place at that moment. I appreciate how qualities of touch and presence can be conveyed in drawings and prints.
