Monotypes, known as the painterly print, are unique works on paper made by transferring an inked surface onto paper. In this full day workshop we will explore ways to create botanical monotype prints. With the use of stencils that we will create along with actual leaves, we will experiment with different inks and methods of inking to create a range of effects. We will print on an etching press, which will allow for all of the subtleties found within each leaf to be transferred to our prints along with an intricate embossment. All participants will leave with their own unique series of prints.

Kim Spivey is a graduate of Florida Atlantic University with an MFA in painting and a BFA in printmaking, and has completed a certificate program in green printmaking in intaglio at Zea Mays Printmaking in Florence, MA. Spivey has applied what she learned at Zea Mays to her own studio where she is set up to create without the use of solvents or tar based materials commonly found in traditional printmaking studios. Her work explores the beauty that is found from deep observation, exploring the flux that can be found in the intricate nature of mark making. She seeks out how a fixed object can suggest and become a record of movement.
