Latest news from my studio


My "Printmaking + Mixed Media" book is mentioned in one of the nicest magazines I know:
                                                    Uppercase:


I LOVE this publication for several reasons: The graphic design is top notch (clean, colorful, clear), the paper it is printed on is wonderful to the touch, and mostly - the content is always so inspiring, educational, informative and beautiful to look at. Each issue has a common theme - this last one is all about printmaking. I have been a subscriber for a couple of years and I savor every issue.  If you are into design (of any kind), arts, crafts, or just looking for an eye candy - you want it!
The publisher, editor and designer is the multi -talented Janin Vangool from Canada.







On another note: I will be participating in Seth Apter's blog post about "Living with Art".
He will feature some artists' (including myself) photos of how they display art at home -both their own art as well as others'. Seth's blog is also full of inspiration and information for any mixed media artist.


Also a reminder: the next two workshops I will be teaching:
May 31: Gelli plate printmaking and June 21: Beyond Gelli printmaking.
info here: https://www.cityofpaloalto.org/gov/depts/csd/artcenter/classes/adults/classes.asp
I am really excited about these workshops - they give me another opportunity to play and explore further my favorite techniques which always bring up something new to each workshop.

A printmaking sampler

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.

Lovely gelli plate workshop


Many thanks to all of the talented ladies who came to play and print last Saturday.
The beautiful books and prints in these pictures are just a small sample of the wonderful art I saw at the end of the day.

20 years in the (print)making!

I am very honored and delighted to share that my printmaking art and ebook are the subject of the Cloth Paper Scissors daily newsletter:
http://www.clothpaperscissors.com/blogs/clothpaperscissorstoday/archive/2015/01/05/printmaking-techniques-pattern-play.aspx

In truth it has been more than 20 years, but who is counting..

I am taking this opportunity to add a few more images of my printmaking with and without mixed media from the last five years or so:
