John first came to Oehme Graphics in June of 2016 to collaborate with master printer Susan Oehme.  Over the course of his visit, John and Sue created 27 prints ranging from 28 3/4” x 23 1/4” to 30” x 48”. John’s  monotypes are made with multiple layers of watercolors, each layer is created  from a combination of brush strokes, woodblock and silkscreen matrices. The result is a bright and complex impression of place. He explains part of his creative process as, “I begin with the simple act of observing, often with a sketch or small painting. In taking those fleeting images back to my studio, as recall fades, imagination takes over and the images begin to  change.”
