Patricia Collins

I have been an artist all my life. When I was a student at Pratt Institute I discovered printmaking and eventually I was able to buy a Vandercook Proof Press and a 30" x 50" Charles Brand Etching Press. However, to experiment with color offset and many kinds of intaglio techniques I need studio space where I can work undisturbed. My earlier work was determined by the discipline of Book Art and now I can create prints just for the sake of printmaking and all of its possibilities. I want to experiment with overlapping different print techniques on one page and to experiment in new directions that I have been thinking about for some time and create a new body of work.
