Water Prints: Monoprints with a story and a sense of place

The Water Prints evolve with, in, on, and alongside the Mississippi River. I bring my photographs with their embedded river stories to open-air studios where the water and nature’s tools on hand mark, draw on, stain, paint, and infuse the prints. These art making places discovered over my years working in the watershed are at a confluence, a farm culvert, the headwaters, a basically pristine trout stream, and a spot where a haz-mat suit was required to work in the Big River. I make this art in common with the water. No matter how devastated the ecosystem the beauty and truth are there for us to see.
