Collagraph Print - Print created from a card plate made by adding paint, glue, enamel and other textures. This holds the ink in varying degrees and is printed through the intaglio process. The more texture on the printing plate the more ink it will hold and the darker the image will print. The smoother the surface it will hold less ink and therefore print lighter.
My prints are created in small editions, normally of about 10. Many are one-off due to the nature of the printmaking process.
