falling in love with the process.

swinging focus is a home for my wintergreen transfers, a technique i learned while studying photo at VCU. what is a wintergreen transfer, you ask? it is a method of printmaking where an image printed with a transferrable ink is transferred onto another object with wintergreen essential oil. i fell in love with this process during my junior year in the VCUarts photography undergraduate program and have been using it constantly since graduating.

due to the nature of the transfer, each transferred image is different. like a painting, the strokes that i've made during the transfer process can be seen on the paper which makes for a unique and individual piece of art.

any of my pieces can be made at any size, so if you would like something larger or smaller i am more than happy to accommodate you! please message or email me for more information.
