Latest news from my studio

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

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:
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.
