The photo above shows the type of press that I used at West Cove Studio to create monotypes. Since I knew that I could not bring a giant Brand Intaglio press into my condo, I recently bought myself a new baby press which is wonderful. It is a Blick press which so far seems to work just fine.

From 2004 to 2013, I was a founding member of West Cove Studio & Gallery, a cooperative, artist run gallery; consisting of 2,400 sq. ft. studio in a renovated factory building that dates back to the 1860’s, located in West Haven, CT. It was a great space, really fun to work in, and I miss everyone there a great deal. For now, I am leaving the photo of the large press up on the page, I miss the place too much.
