Gel Plate Printing Class

 I taught my first in person class at Remarque Print Workshop on Saturday the 15th. All of the 6 students were vaccinated and boostered and masked.  The classroom space there was nice as the people in the class had room to spread out. It was a terrific day and lots of prints were made. So here are some photos from the class.  If you live in the Albuquerque NM area check out Remarque as they have lots of classes.

MaryBeth Shaw owner of StencilGirl gave some stencils for this class- some are shown above.

Here are a few prints the students made. There were literally hundreds of prints made!

Hello 2022!

 Here we are in another year-I am working hard to be optimistic about things.  That is a challenge given the "might never end pandemic" and the political state of the country.  That said, my gratitude list is long.

I have been working in the studio a fair amount of late.  I have made some new collages and houses and journal spreads. I am also getting caught up on some collaborations and starting some new ones. Here are some photos of a journal I made and this will be traveling journal- I am doing this with 3 friends. We each made journals and we mail them to each other and when all is done each of us will have a journal with all of our work in it.  This journal closed is 5 1/2 inches square. The three spreads here are mine- each of the others get three spreads to make.

Here are some recent collages. The first 3 are made using some things from a collage kit I receive each month. Luis Martin is a terrific collage artist and has a group called Collage Dream.  When you subscribe you get a collage kit each month with a prompt to use if you choose to. Google Luis Martin The Art Engineer  and try CollageDream. Fun stuff.
