River West Artworks
Original Art, Artisan Works and Photographs by Jan Jenkins and Brian Erickson


“Windeater” was inspired by my original “In The Wind” pen and ink repeating pattern design and accompanying poem referencing dragonflies, falling leaves and migrating seeds that bring hope and the promise of new life. Dragonflies are an integral part of the Manitoba landscape and symbolize change through self-discovery and the opening of oneself to living freely and in the moment, embracing our authentic selves. This mono print is a unique image created from a plexi-glass plate with my “Windeater” design scratched into it and applying ink colors in varying ways. This monoprint was done as with oil based inks, first the black was pressed into the scratched design on the plate, then removed from the surface and other color(s) thinly applied and manipulated a la poupee. The inked plate image was then transferred from the plate onto dampened paper.
