Kathy Printing
In her work Sherin uses various combinations of collage, collagraph, relief printing, drypoint, carborundum, chine collé, and monoprint techniques. She has evolved from her traditional roots in lithography and intaglio to the exclusive use of plastic materials and direct non-chemical-mediated methods.  Her works on paper engage in a dynamic dialogue painting printmaking and collage. Working on an etching press, she approaches printmaking with the directness of a painter and an eye for contrasts of a collage artist. Her rich and complex prints evolve from the multiple layering of collagraphic elements.  In some prints offer further sharp spatial or clashing contrasts by her method of slicing apart prints and reassembling them into new and contrasting wholes.

Here is a link to the making of a carborundum print.
