The mono-print process ...These miniature orchids have been drawn directly from the flowering plants and are 'true to life' in scale using the hand drawing printing technique of mono-printing. Printing ink is applied to a glass surface with a roller, a sheet of paper is placed onto the ink and the image is drawn directly onto the paper. Once completed, the paper is peeled from the ink to reveal the mono-print drawing. Unlike most printmaking, the image can only be made once. The technique attempts to capture the elusive and intriguing qualities of these little exotic orchids.

Back in the studio!

After a two and a half year break, restoring a 200 ear old Irish farmstead - as my new studio space and designing and supervising the building of our new Passive home, I'm back in the studio!
