I have painted with oil colors for a number of years but I’ve always loved the look of woodcut and linocut art. My current works include both oil paintings and monotypes. By way of an abbreviated explanation, a monotype is technically a print, but a transferred image of only one. My process involves drawing on a fully inked glass sheet, creating the image by cutting away ink with a razor blade, cloth or tool, then transferring the remaining image by hand to paper. The hand-transfer process adds its own character to the image making each drawing doubly unique.
