This piece is a one of a kind monoprint collage. This print is one piece within a body of work that consists of 6 individualized collages created from shapes cut from my monotype designs, each arranged into a unique composition.


The process begins with the printing of the full monotype sheets in a range of colors. The sheets are then cut down into collections of of stylized shapes, and these shapes are repeated throughout the entire series. Each composition is arranged, pinned together, assembled with archival glue, and finally, printed via chine collé on to a blank white sheet with a copper plate, giving the final piece the appearance of a painting. This body of work was inspired by my visit to the Henri Matisse show at the Museum of Modern Art this past February. I was tremendously moved by his cutouts and the vocabulary of each of his signature shapes, and I began my own cutout series, first small, then larger, and larger.

The piece is about my own journey of healing, and how I find beauty and joy in my hardships.
