Please keep in mind, each print is one of a kind and there might be slight varieties in each print.
This warped fairy/mushroom circle was inspired by the mushroom circles that were forming around my neighborhood before winter. It was fun finding them and watching them grow and change over time. A friend reminded me of the folklore of mushroom circles being created by fairies.
Of course, I expanded the experience and idea more to create my own story out of it.
This fairy is starting to expand.. She is tired of making those poor mortals dance for the rest of her days. She's ready to explore more and go beyond the circle. It is believed that those who join the fairy dance within the circle under the moon are sometimes lost to time and place and may even disappear forever.
This paper is 100% sunshine yellow cotton rag. There are two tones here one is lighter than the other.
Every single one of my prints is hand-printed and not a reproduction.
There are many different printmaking techniques.
Traditional printmaking techniques include relief printing, lithography, intaglio printing, and screen printing. At the moment, I prefer linocut printmaking which is a type of relief printing. All of my prints are created using this process.
First I start by drawing the image desired to carve onto a block of linoleum. Areas to remain the color of the surface being printed on are carved from the block first. Then the ink is rolled onto the uncut surface of the block. I then lay the paper on top of the block, first attaching the tabs that hold the paper in place so that each time I lay down the paper the image is transferred with complete registration. When the paper is removed the image then appears in reverse.
