Her interest has shifted again to lino cuts as a vehicle for pattern, color and texture.  She is also exploring monotypes.  These are one of a kind prints made by painting with Ikua inks on a plate, placing paper on the plate and pulling a print. Her work is all hand done and low tech using just inks, paper and hands.

I’m pursuing a visual impact and meaning through exploring shape, color, texture and pattern.” Linda Rose Larochelle
