This was a series of 12 Monotypes I did based all around my family. Monotyping is a technique where ink or paint is applied to a flat surface such as a piece of plexy glass (that's what I used for these) and then put through a press in order to be printed on a piece of paper. When paint and ink is being applied to the plate you can do different things to it in order to get different effects. In the case of these works I put down fabric to get different textures and block out areas and then ran it through a press where the ink was transferred to paper. I also used colored paper in which I had copied pictures of my family on and Incorporated these pictures into my work along with sewing with my machine on each work.
