Eco Print: Natural World

This Eco Print was made from leaves on paper simmered in a pot with alum and iron as mordants and modifiers. It is mounted on framed wood and waxed for permanence.

NEW WORK: Eco Printing on Paper

My passion for eco printing is based in the magical, chemical experience between myself and the plant life around me. Eco printing is about gathering found objects and plant material, composing and binding it creatively, and then simmering it on the stove. Each print is unique and depends upon the chemical processes used--the content of the water, the mordant, rusty iron oxide, the pan's metal used and  natural dyeing materials for color. I love that it makes me see the world differently. Now I find myself studying every type of tree, flower or plant to consider the potential for artistic expression.
