About Oceanview, Andrea says: I have fun making these prints. This medium is a way for me to play with color, texture and stencils with unexpected results. I mix the water based inks, paint the Plexiglas tablet and build up the layers of inked stencils. To create the print, I take this tablet, with damp paper on top, and run both through a press. Once finished with the printmaking process, I take the prints into my Petaluma studio and embellish the images with mark making, inks, oil and chalk pastels.
With this monoprint, I put forth a challenge to myself: work with yellow and pink. The ocean theme is ever-present in my work, given that I live so close to both the Caribbean and the Pacific oceans. I made the fish, the gecko-like creature and coiled stencils and went to work. The result is one of my favorite monoprints.
