Hand Painted Gocco Print (Gouache and Ink) on Antique Journal Page.

4.75" x 6.75" affixed with photo corners to 8.5” x 11" archival black mounting board.

On the Antique Journal Page this work is on: I am a collector of antique paper, preferring handwritten love letters, poems and journal pages. I have amassed many journals from the 1930’s filled with song lyrics of the day. I have seen so many from many different collections of these that I believe this must have been a popular thing to do in the day. I love the texture and history it adds to my imagery. Funny side note: I once had a review of my art and the author said “Her art is lovely, but her poetry is horrible.”

This is an original piece of art. While my work starts with a not-so-traditional print making method (hand cut stencils and a Japanese screen printing toy called a Gocco printer), no two pieces are alike. I am thoughtful about what I print on (I am most satisfied when I can make a tangible or visceral connection between the materials used and the image rendered) and I paint each piece by hand, one at a time.
