In the last few weeks I have been working on this series of booklets (each has 6 pages and is 36" long). They include several printmaking techniques plus other mixed media techniques:
Gelli plate printing, collagraph printing, screen printing with Thermafax screens, stenciling, stamping, collage and pen work.
I love using all of these techniques together. I think they compliment each other and look great together.
Last week was a 'two in one' fun:
First - teaching and taking workshops at the wonderful art retreat "Create".
And second - visiting one of my favorite cities in the US: Seattle.
Arriving to Seattle by air is amazing: Looking at all the water and green islands is breathtaking.
Seattle is also famous for its street art, which you bump into every corner of the street, and around many public buildings. I only had a few free hours and this selection of photos is just the tip of the iceberg..
snowy mountains are not too far..
beautiful totem polls carved by the Northwest Native Americans

these instruments are a few stories high!
..and the other fun part - creating art with hundreds of women artists who all came just for that purpose from all over the US!
Here are most of the participants in the classes I taught and their wonderful art:
Thank you Carolina, Iris, A.J.,Kelly, Ginger, Cynthia, Barsha, Dani, Susan, Lynn, Janet, Cheryl,

It was a pleasure working with you.
