“Colored Drypoint Landscape”
Akua Ink and colored pencils on Arnhem paper/ Drypoint Print
The print was made after a landscape I saw and took a picture of while going to San Diego last summer. One can find different textures, landforms, plants, and a water mass (the ocean). Being able to capture so much that encapsulates a landscape in my mind is in my final piece.

“Positivity vs. Negativity in the year 2020.”
Akua Ink on Arnhem, Kozo, and magazine paper/ Pochoir/Stenciling Print
This Pochoir poster attempts to communicate the idea of pushing down the negativity of 2020 and looking/choosing the positivity. The character above negative words such as depression, hate, pain, and loss is on top of them, seemingly having risen above and continuing to push down on the negativity. Their hands open and their head raised, appearing to have looked up from their once cradled and weak position towards the words of unity, hope, and love, which are being raised by arms/hands. The piece is meant to show many different ideas, and I partially want to leave it up to the viewer. One can see maybe that while 2020 was a challenging year and many of us were left cradling ourselves from all the negativity around us when we look up, we can see the overwhelming positives this year has brought. People united against hate, corruption, racism, etc. People inspiring hope with things such as a vaccine, a new president for the US, protests worldwide for things such as BLM, or the Hong Kong protests. Individuals feeling the love as being in lockdown involved many being locked in with friends or family and becoming closer to others. As well as people marrying and finding relationships increased people’s feelings of love during this troubling time. In a time where negative emotions can overcome us, we must raise our heads and look towards the future with an optimistic outlook if we are to rebuild after Corona.

Akua Ink on Kozo Paper
This print includes a wolf, lobster, koi fish hybrid as a new species carved into a block of maple wood and then printed on Kozo paper that was printed ahead of time with a blend roll background of light pink and dark pink. The new species “Wolobsterish” ((wol)f l(obster) f(ish)) seems to be swimming, and one is left to wonder, where is it going? Where would we see this species? Where does this new species lie on the food chain? One can speculate; however, the answer is just as ambiguous as the species itself.
