Gelatin printing is a wonderful way to get imagery on the paper without a press. . I wanted to take it beyond the stamping and texturing phase in order to bring my own voice to the work. I create all my own stencils and masks derived from my long history of drawing and painting plant forms. The joy of gelatin printing is that you never know what you are going to get in the end. I find it important to steer clear of planning. I just let the work flow and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. But it always keeps me coming back for more.
