Description of Maritaville
This image is from a collagraph that I made. A collagraph is made by using mat board or cardboard and building up textures in low relief to make the design. Then it is inked and run through a press onto printmaking paper. I decided to call it Maritaville as a play on my name and it reflects my love of nature and patterns. This original Artist Proof (A/P) is matted and framed in a 16×20 dark frame.I have experimented with different colors of the print. On this one the pelican is red with a background of yellows and pinks. This collagraph won Third Place for Printmaking at Montgomery County Community College Art Show Apr 25, 2012. Also First place for Graphic art at the Manayunk Roxborough Art Center Juried show July 2012.
