I have been making monotypes since 1979. My monotypes are essentially printed paintings, each one a one-of-a-kind piece. I use a very time-consuming method of working in layers on zinc plates with oil pastels, oil paints, lithographic crayons and hand-cut stencils, often using the ghost image left on a plate or a paint-laden stencil to launch a series. The painted plate is then heated and printed on Arches Cover or Rives BFK on an etching press. I have led numerous workshops and lectured at colleges and art centers on this remarkable medium. My most recent series echoes (and often predates) much of the imagery in the oil paintings.
