Printmaking with Inspired Citations
This small book combines quotes (words) with printmaking (visuals) to create impressions that have inspired each other.
I love quotes. They stimulate, excite, and motivate. Well-crafted words leave lasting impressions. They touch an emotional pulse point in our souls. Quotes add clarity of thought when one can’t find expression. A quote can help to see light when all seems dark and gives an extra burst of hope and courage to persevere.
I love printmaking. It is a multi-process endeavor. Printmaking is a journey to create a visual impression on paper. It begins with the spark of inspiration to transfer to a print plate, inking with a thoughtful palette, combining plate and paper on a printing press, and finally the excitement and surprise when pulling the print. I aspire to create magical moments or places where one can find respite within their imagination based on natural habitats.
