In my creative practice, play is a methodology for making, as well as a lens for observing the world. Outcrop and Collect combine the printmaking process of monotype with collage using an etching press. I’m drawn to collage because it allows for control, while also maintaining a sense of spontaneity throughout the assembly. Gradually, as layers of ink and paper come together, a narrative begins to form. In these prints, colors and shapes become elements to form a pattern and symbols to sketch deeper meaning.
