Relief print of Kissa on front porch, in five monochromatic shades. The process is called reduction relief which uses one block for several colors. The first ink is applied and the block is carved away in preparation for the next layer until at the end, there is almost nothing left of the block.
About the Artist
I’m a printmaker and metalwork sculptor. My print work explores landscapes and architectural elements paying attention to relationships between form, shadow, light and negative space, and how atmosphere affects a viewer’s perceptions. I am currently working in abstract mono relief prints and limited editions of reduction relief printing, a process that utilizes a single block for several individual colors. I received a BFA from the University of Montana with emphases in Printmaking and Metalwork/Sculpture. My work has been shown in Key West, FL; Spokane, WA; Big Horn, WY Minneapolis, MN; Schenectady, NY; Plymouth, MA; Bryn Mawr, PA; Missoula, MT; Billings, MT. I was born and raised in rural Northeastern Connecticut. My father was a carpenter and my mother raised chickens. I contracted polio as an infant and have worn a leg brace ever since.
