Collagraph prints are made by printing from a plate constructed on either mountboard or very thin plywood. The texture is built up like a collage, hence the name collagraph, using a variety of mediums and then the plate is inked and printed using a press. Because the image is printed under pressure the image is embossed into the paper. Each print is completely unique even if they have been printed from the same plate or even with the same colours.

Work from the "Musical Series" the "Mask Series" and two Ecological pieces.
Here are some prints from my Kimono series featuring both Kimonos and Happy Coats in different patterns. They are loosely based on the Kimono shape which is a wonderful shape to design within. It has been a very enjoyable series for me as I have been able to combine colour and asymmetrical design both of which I love. Click on an image to see it larger.

I was going to write an Ebook on how to create Collagraphs like these but have decided to do a video course instead. For more information see the workshop page
