BOTANICAL PRINT MAKING

Pressed, dried plant life is arranged onto an inked surface and printed on dampened paper using an etching press or gelli plate, to create a monotype print.  Sometimes the plants are inked directly to transfer their image to the paper and processes can be repeated several times to build up the image in different colours.  The prints are often collaged or worked into with other media to create a layered image.  Prints are available for purchase in my shop.
