Rust Prints - mixed media
For these, I utilize found and specifically made pieces of cast iron and steel to create images from iron oxide on cotton fabric and paper. The compositions are created with wood, nails, and wool.
The other colorations are achieved with natural pigments created from fresh and dried plant materials, based upon my research of mordants and dyeing.

Monoprints - mixed media
Much of my work includes experimentation with natural substances as colorants. These are few examples of my work with iron oxide and other applications.
The floor monoprints are a combination of flour, coffee, cocoa, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
My other mixed media monoprints include spray paint, acrylic paint, india ink, and colored pencils.
