"These monoprints are from a series I created during a residency at a local print studio. I am generally new to printmaking and to this specific technique. I fell in love with the endless possibility of compositions, the newness of each print, and knowing each pull was unique from the rest. This series centers joy, growth, vibrancy and light. The pieces are playful and funky.
"Art making is a meditative and healing process for me, and in the height of 2020 when they were created, it was exactly what I needed to move through that time."
