Printmaking

I love experimenting with print and different print techniques, and mostly keep my process light and playful. Using easily available materials frees up my thinking and helps me simply to enjoy the process. Most of my prints are relief prints, cut from whatever comes to my hand: rubber stamping materials and erasers as well as traditional printmaking lino and wood. But I also utilize other printmaking techniques like screenprints, aluminium (kitchen) litho, drypoint in rhenalon, and others.

Many of my print sessions result in mini prints of which I make to produce business cards (ATCs), bookmarks and other ephemeral items that I mostly give away or swap (let me know if you are interested). But every now and then I make what I consider a more serious print, in a larger format, which I then offer for sale. Here are some of the more recent “bigger” prints:

In many of my bottles for my project message in a bottle I used small rubber stamps as well as larger prints. Usually I don’t show the content of bottles that have not been found (yet), but I make an exception for you here: Click on the thumbnail below to start the slideshow.

Since I participated in Sarah Bodman’s Bookmark project, I have been making different bookmarks. Some you have seen already above in the general gallery. If you would like to see more, click here:
