Tree, Branch, Grass: A Monoprint Auction
Join me on Facebook Monday, April 26 at 10 am- Tuesday, April 27 until 7:30 PM for an online auction of my new little print series that features some gorgeous scenes from local places like Phillips Park, Oakhurst Forest preserve, and the Morton Arboretum. These are one of a kind signed Monoprints. The backgrounds are a hand-pulled prints that vary in color, from a subtle atmospheric feel to a saturated peach sunset.
The papers are either acid free rice paper, Lokta paper, or pages from a Shakespeare
play. Next I layer the photographic imagery over it, sign, and package them on acid free backing board with photo corners. They are approximately 5 x 8“ so they could fit into a standard 5 x 7 Matt OR float them between glass to keep some of the interesting edges. If your mom is a tree hugger, this would be a lovely gift for Mother’s Day.
It’s super easy to participate. Just sign into Facebook and look up Holz Fine Art (https://www.facebook.com/
I am a professional artist and amateur naturalist. As an art material junkie, I LIVE to find new materials and methods to interpret the natural forms I find and photograph on my regular excursions into the forest preserves of Illinois with my brilliant rescue pup Max at my side. My nature inspired mixed media artwork is a homage to natures strength, beauty, and diversity. I currently am obsessed with using nature’s laws of gravity to play with liquid and fluid forms of paints and inks, and manipulating the patterns they leave behind….A large part of my income is from commissions, so if you don’t find anything that resonates with you here, contact me to interpret your project through an earthy well crafted design.My work has been shown in museums, galleries, corporation, hospitals and some really killer residences. I’ve been awarded grants for the Illinois arts council and over 8 artists residences, but my greatest reward by far is loading my pup into the truck and heading to the studio for an uninterrupted day of making!
