Print Habit Studio = where all prints are made by a human using techniques that have been around since day dot.
My prints are inspired by country of origin Papua New Guinea with representations of Masalai and performance of Sing Sings (cultural dance and singing) that represent the intersections of race and identity.
In particular my aim is to work spontaneously with memories that appear, or with collected items or within mediums themselves to let the process of adding and subtracting occur until the work is complete.
While I am doing this, I recognize the autonomy or spontaneousness of the artwork as it appears and emerges by itself and is formed with these threads of dual worlds that becomes fixed on a matrix or collaged on paper and reassembled once more.
I produce one-off pieces and limited editions. To maintain the precious and personal quality of the work my editions are small and I use fine art acid free printmaking paper maintaining a work process that is as eco sensitive as possible. I reuse all paper from proofs in collages to limit waste.
Once an edition is sold out, it will not be repeated.
