The Key to Maples

This Maple leaf and key image is made from trees in my own garden. My garden is often my inspiration and I love representing it with textural monotypes! These make perfect, affordable gifts for any art lover in your life!

This Monotype is a one-of-a-kind print. There is only one. I created it by manipulating the ink right on a smooth metal printing plate and by adding and subtracting the objects from my garden. The image then gets transferred to paper by putting it through a printmaking press. By pressing the ink & paper together with the pigments sandwiched in between, I am able to create textures not possible using other printmaking techniques. It is printed with a mixture of oil-based inks to create the unique rich garden green colour ink you see here, on Stonehenge Archival Printmaking Paper.

This is an original one-of-a-kind print. The print is numbered 1 of 1, titled and signed.

This listing is for the unframed print.

The image is 30cm x 23cm (11.625 inches h x 9 inches w)

This print is presented in a plastic sleeve with a board backing. A small write up on my printing process is also included. Prints are shipped out in a protective envelope to ensure they reach you safely.
