SUSAN PLANT ART & DESIGN
more

Welcome to my gallery of prints and paintings. Originally trained as an architect, I have recently returned to my interest in creating art. I am particularly attracted to printmaking because there is an element of surprise inherent in the printmaking process which pushes and inspires me to make new discoveries. My mixed-media paintings are heavily influenced by the discoveries I have made in printmaking.

Most of the images in my work reflect my interpretations of natural objects, landscapes, and patterns. In printmaking, I work in intaglio, monotype, pronto plate lithography, and woodblock techniques using multiple layers of color, stencils, masks, and ghost images. During the printmaking process I discover new textures and transparencies, which further inform my work. Most recently I have been working on artist’s books and decorative hand-made pamphlets and journals.
