Handprint “Happy elders”
This series of prints is a reaction to all negative messages about aging. Let’s all agree that it beats the alternative, right?
I like to look forward to aging with joy. Perhaps getting older is the perfect opportunity to free oneself from some of society’s expectations and demands for adaptation?

Here, too, I have used the Japanese printing technique of rice printing and combined it with hand-print.
