I used one of my kids early drawings as the central image. I blew it up in a xerox copier and transferred the image to a zinc plate. After the image was etched onto the plate,I added engraved drawings with a much finer line to stablish a time differenciation. Then I chine cole 2 different colored japanese papers over the image.Finally, I added my "signature touch" of colored threads machine embroidered over the print to add compositional elements to the whole print.And last but not least, I sewed a "milagro" (charm) to the print.
Most of my previous work has been based on the theme "Childhood Memories". Unfortunately, those memories portrayed were always sad ones. For this print I wanted to express them differently. I felt it was time to start remembering the happy times. This exercise has helped me investigate a whole new approach to my work, which I have fallen in love with!!!! (Thanks WPA!!!)
