Monotype prints are where I first began experimenting with geometric designs inspired by Karuk basketry patterns. This style of printmaking has been my most consistent medium so far. Due to the nature of monotypes and monoprints, each one is unique and an edition of 1/1.
The majority of my prints have been made during past workshops and shared studio visits at Crow's Shadow Institute of the Arts on the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation near Pendleton, Oregon. I have also done some printing at Pratt Fine Arts Center in Seattle and worked on two commissioned projects at Sidereal Fine Art Press in Tukwila, Washington. In fall of 2022 I was lucky enough to complete a formal artist residency at Crow's Shadow where I created two series of monoprints, one series of monotypes, and have one lithograph edition that will be released in the spring of 2023.
I occasionally have created digital designs for client projects or made limited merchandise items using images of my monotype prints, but a pair of small giclée editions done while I was in school are the only digitally printed 2D artwork I have chosen to release so far as I much prefer the intimacy of working directly with ink and paper on a press.
