We strive for a wholeness to our lives that supports our efforts
to have a restorative effect on the earth and in our community. We print when we have access to a press, which comes
periodically and sometimes unexpectedly. Our monotypes are inevitably about natural places we know or wild places we
hope to restore. In between printing episodes, we are collecting ideas, experiences and stories we want to convey in
our monotypes, and a leaf or image or grains of soil from these wild places to use or inspire us.
One of Nancy's first monotypes happened after she overheard a fragment of a conversation among elected officials
about why a lake conservation effort was so difficult: "Fish don't pay taxes".
We use our monotypes to communicate vision and challenges for landscape restoration
projects on which we work.
