Trained as a painter and a printmaker, Christy Mitchell has focused on developing Monotypes, which combine traditional brush painting with a print process which produces only one image, hence the name, Monotype. She has developed unique techniques that combine luscious painterly qualities with rich colour and texture, which are the trademarks of her work.


About Christy's Work


Christy Mitchell usually works in 'series,' exploring a particular theme or subject matter, and often returning to re-work images and symbols that she has referred to over the years in her art practice. Her work is diverse in subject matter, yet always follows her interest in landscapes and the gifts of the earth.
