Came across this carved Indian Doll stuffed away in a cabinet in the garage. It was done about 15-20 yrs ago. He is carved out of cedar and his leather loin cloth & body are painted with acrylics. I never got around to finishing up the base. Maybe one of these days!
This is a mixed media mono-print I created last year. I carved a stamp of the Indians and clouds and add them to the mono-print. I also had a fascination with bees waxed and that was also added. There was a lot of application and scraping with this piece.
This is a collagraph print done in two colors. I was pretty pleased with the way it came out, but I ripped the plate shortly after I pulled this print. I’m planning on creating another one.
A collagraph is a created by adhering things such as string, wire, paper, sand, etc…. to a plate. You seal it then print out your image. The beauty about collagraphs is that you never really know how your print is going to turn out.
