Tea Time Print Series
In this monotype series I explore the contradiction of tea being a genteel tradition for elegant ladies versus being a forbidden, unhealthy substance. Raised as a non-tea drinker, my newly acquired habit of drinking an herbal tea borders on scandalous behavior that may imperil my immortal soul. By layering direct, indirect, and ghost prints I create not so still lifes of tea pots and tea cups enjoying a sip of tea together. My influence for the series is print artist Jenny Waelti-Walters.
