A Collage Approach to Monotype Printmaking Workshop
June 13 – 15 at Sitka Center for Art and Ecology
Photos are from my recent three day workshop at Sitka Center on the Oregon Coast. The weather was glorious and the time flew by – such a delightful group.
Oil-based inks were layered on plexiglas plates using stencils, printing blocks and relief plates made during the workshop. Chine collé elements were adhered during transfer to paper with the Ray Trayle etching press. Beautiful hand-printed papers for collage were created using the leftover inks.

Sitka Center for Art and Ecology: A Collage Approach to Monotype
June 13 – 15, 10am – 4pm
February 23 – Member’s Registration
March 9 – Public Registration
Sitka Center for Art and Ecology is located just north of Lincoln City on the beautiful Oregon Coast. I am delighted to offer my printmaking workshop at Sitka this summer.
Combine a variety of techniques to create layered monotype prints in this three day workshop. Make your own stencils, printing blocks and relief plates and learn to create hand-printed collage papers. Develop a monotype series using your handmade tools, a ghost print technique, vibrant layers of oil-based inks and the chine collé method of collage.
In the Studio
Having great fun in the studio this winter; working on collages for a show at Luke’s Frame Shop in May.
First I created a collection of hand-printed papers using stencils,relief plates,oil based inks and acrylic glazes. I am now layering the patterned papers with monotypes, etchings, and bits of old maps and sheet music. These new works explore playful juxtaposition of pattern, line and color.
Look for show details this early spring.
