In Fall 2017 I took a printmaking class and I was hooked! Each process used such as linocut, etching, screen printing and so on; can offer many possibilities. I don’t know if it’s the steps in each process that I enjoy like creating the image to print, or cutting the paper, or rolling the ink, or running it through the press and lifting and pulling the image. I don’t know what exactly my favorite part is, I just know printing makes me happy.
For my final project I was free to choose whatever I wanted to do! For this I got a little help from my little hummingbird friend, I call him Hummi. I know! Not a very creative name but believe me, he’s a Hummi. He served as my inspiration for an image. In addition to printing, I also enjoy working with fibers and I wanted to silkscreen print on fabric. So, I made my own printed design on fabric and made a skirt.
Check out my final project!
