This monotype / monoprint image was created one afternoon as I leisurely stepped into my studio feeling an overwhelming wave of gratitude and self-love. I quickly found a small plexiglass sheet and ‘painted’ this amazing heart into a monotype which has found its joy through many trying times and many beautiful moments. This is an original hand-pulled fine art print from a Takach etching press. ——————————- All Heart (2015) Monotype on lightweight printmaking paper (Strathmore 300) 8" x 10" unframed$30 Last One!

Yolanda attended California State University, Hayward (1988) to study music, and there, she was introduced to lithography where she instantly fell in love with the laborious, mind-bending, and magnificently serendipitous processes of fine art printmaking. She had the opportunity to study under the renowned Tamarind master Kenjilo Nanao and monoprint expert Linda Goodman. In 2013, after raising her family and moving back to her hometown of Oakland, CA, she found Bernadette Martinez at Artery Press who nurtured her re-acquaintance with the medium. Yolanda’s current focus is mostly relief processes. Experimental by nature, she keeps her methods fresh while her focus keeps the subject consistently on urban culture, the power of nature, and other social, spiritual, and environmental inspirations. Her images as well as their depth of meaning are often layered and printed on handmade paper, mulberry, or cotton rag, using plexiglass in addition to wood, lino, and nature itself as a printing plate. She personally executes all the steps involved in the printmaking process, from developing the image, gouging, inking, and pulling the print by hand.
