About Kathleen Thoma
My recent work has been a return to intersection of dreaming, nature, spirit, and the creative impulse. Remembering which images come into existence during the exploration of my dreams, and the nature that I study, I take a long time creating each plate, which then is printed on my intaglio press. I use many layers, stop and start again while I listen to what each image wants as it comes into being. My images are pieces of my many dreams. I share them out of some inner compulsion which all artists have.
These days my primary medium of expression is with monotypes, however I am constantly exploring with relief, chine colle and collage. I cut all of my own stencils by hand, these shapes are plucked from some unknown source in my head, or from nature’s kind inspiration.
To me, the best part of creating with anything new is the unknown journey and it’s mysterious destination.
