Take one Artist Statement

At this stage this is printed on A4 heavy weight printer paper. I changed a small koru decoration in photoshop elements and printed it out to see if I could fit my artist statement for the mringa te kakara project around the shape. Originally I had thought of trying to print the text using PSE as well but then I thought it might be more pertinent for it to be in my own handwriting. It written with a silver pen and while in some places the writing is not so neat I thin that keeps in more authentic. Not sure if I will redo this of try and work with it as it is. I might try encasing it in wax as I have been reading about encaustic wax processes and Jane Dunnewold used wax overlays in some of her botanical printing pieces
