About the Monotypes

'I spent lot of time watching paint dry which was fine because I considered myself to be, first and foremost, a painter.' Paint was a roar and as an artist of the 70s, 80s, and 90s, I loved the fury of it. But I grew restless, unfulfilled. I experimented with drawing because, after all, the paint couldn’t be the problem. I cut and tore paper to make collages. I tried drawing like a child and other indulgences, but the paper collages offered a new design process just in time for my new passion: monotypes. Lithographic ink did things I could never accomplish with paint. Though the ink can roar, it also can whisper, and the subtractive process of monotypes appeals to me. My work is a process and what I offer is pure discovery.
