Safety in numbers

Safety in numbers – “Being part of a group makes one less likely to be harmed”

This is one of the first prints I made, using cardboard cutouts and the monotype method using a sheet of acetate. I love the sponteniety of monoprints and how a variety of effects can be created with simple tools. I have experimented with leaves and flower monoprinting to create backgrounds for linocut, which adds colour and texture.

Yesterday my two nieces visited and we used a gelatin-glycerin plate to create prints with leaves and bubble wrap. It made me smile to hear Chloe exclaim “I want to an artist!” with such enthusiasm.
