Medium Collagraphs


The word collagraph comes from the Greek word kola meaning glue and graph meaning the activity of drawing.

Using mountboard as a plate, I cut into the board and add different textured materials such as carborundum, lichen, oatmeal, acrylic medium etc., to create the plate.  The plate is then protected with shellac.

Different tonal qualities are achieved as a result of the depth of intaglio (the parts cut away) and the differentiated inking from the highly textured surface (relief).

Each original print is hand-inked with intaglio oil based ink and wiped to expose the texture. Each print is unique.

I create a maximum of 30 pieces of work from any plate.
