Veil. 2013
Hand screen printed edition of 10. Man this was difficult to register! I’m really pleased with the result because I think the linework turned out really well. I wanted to print only two colors, but really use the paper white as an active third color.

Screen printing work from this semester. I just started to screen print but I love the immediacy of this form of printmaking and how it allows me to experiment with bold imagery and color.

Visions. 2013
Hand screen printed edition of 5. I used collaged images for the keyline then added colors. I was inspired by old hollywood horror movies that I love like The Birds, Rosemary’s Baby, The Omen, etc.

My science fiction version of little red riding hood. I was trying to stick to only three colors aside from white like my last scifi fairy tale but I just had to add the red.

I’ve been working on some ideas I had for science fiction versions of fairy tales. This one is my version of the little mermaid… but the mermaid is an evil deep space fish. This is still a work in progress - going to screen print it soon.
