I have been drawing from my imagination for many years. Most of the imagery comes from my love of plants and I often use actual organic material as inspiration. I recently decided to develop these drawings into a series of drypoints but became intrigued with creating imagery that played against the drawings. Using Photoshop, I modified images that were scanned from a monoprint, watercolor, drawing or photograph, often combining several images, until I was inspired by the play of the image against the original drawing. For the final image, I combined printing processes, printing the drypoint on the press over the background inkjet print.
