  • Collograph Printing on Fabric – 5 Tips for Great Results

    Monoprinting techniques make me feel like a kid in art class: most are easy, fun, and a little messy. But making collograph prints has to be the most fun of all.

  • Dad and Jack

    This is a fabric portrait I made for my dad's 85th birthday. It's from a photo of him when he was 9 years old, posing with his dog, Jack.
