What is a portfolio?

Portfolio is the term used to describe a set or series of images collected in a folder to be stored or displayed. Artists often keep images together which they prefer to present as a group. Some are related thematically, while others are not.

Monotype

Refers to a printmaking that is made by painting or drawing on a nonabsorbent, smooth surface. Historically, the surface was an etching plate of copper, but these days, the surface can vary from acrylic to zinc or glass. Image is transferred to a sheet of paper where the two are pressed by use of printing press. The process creates a unique print called monotype. The initial pressing removes most of the ink.

Three dimensional artistic genre and site-specific works often designed to change the perception of space. It generally applies to interior spaces. The art can be temporary or permanent and are mostly constructed is spaces like museums and galleries, as well as private and public spaces.
