Be The Change You Want To See

I've been recording all of my content for various online courses to demystify and make monoprinting more accessible to a wider audience. I did this magazine image transfer as part of the course filming and then modified it with Derwent Inktense pencils, Stabilo Woody pencils and some acrylic paint. 

Here's a quick hyperlapse video showing the transformation.

I have this image posted on our refrigerator as a reminder that more work needs to be done, conversations need to be had (both with ourselves and with others), questions need to be answered, and long-held beliefs need to be challenged.

We all need to stand up, one household at a time, to unite in this fight against injustice and systemic biases. The motto in our house now is: racism ends with me. And because we have been having honest conversations with our six-year-old daughter, and because she sees this image on our fridge every day, I have hope for our future.

Thanks to everyone who responded to my last blog post and newsletter with resources (books, online reads and videos) to share with my daughter. We are all learning together and trying to do better and be better. 



Curious about the products I use for mixed media gel plate transformations? I have listed them below.
