The monoprint series “Natural History” was inspired by the 1st century Roman historian Pliny the Elder’s “Historia Naturalis,” the world’s first encyclopedia. Much like the Internet, Pliny’s work was full of error. And, like the Internet, taken as truth by many people.

 

This ongoing project explores how distortions and propaganda become accepted as fact, and playfully challenges the concept of comprehensive universal knowledge. The series now totals over 150 monoprints.

 

These one-of-a-kind prints are created using multiple printing techniques including copper and zinc etching, linoleum carving, Chine collé, trace-transfer monotyping, silkscreen, lithography and collage. Multiple plates are used on each print.

The Angel series was inspired by the concept of everyday women being real angels in society. The artist uses images of family and friends to portray various archetypes. These prints are created using linoleum –cut printing techniques, which the artist teaches at workshops at the North Shore Art League in Winnetka, Illinois.
