• In October of 2002, I attended a workshop in California with the artist Nessa Grainger. The focus of the workshop was experimenting with integrating watermedia and collage.

    Paintings that I created at the workshop.

  • In May of 2004, I spent some time learning how to make monotype prints using a Plexiglas plate that is covered with a thin layer of gelatin (unflavored, but yes -- essentially Jell-O). It sounds like a rather odd idea, but it allows you to create some very interesting textures. Technical details of the technique can be found in the book "Making Monotypes Using a Gelatin Plate" by Nancy Marculewicz.

    Experimental prints which were made using this technique.
