Northern Indiana may be covered in 2 feet of snow right now, but there are still warm cozy niches to escape to, like this one @the St. Joseph County Library! Check out the 3rd floor and have a look at my copperplate photogravures of Thailand! Most photogravures these days are made from polymer plates, but mineContinue reading “warm orange glow”

elles / ils
It goes something like this: Sharon Arnold curates an all women show called Elles, exploring the female perspective in art- It was a big success. She then curates a second show, inviting only men to exhibit, called Ils Disent (masculine form meaning “they say”) – welcoming the male view of women in art. Artist, BenContinue reading “elles / ils”

Extraordinary works on display and an assortment of visionary artists to engage with; all with contagious energy for print! The city of New Orleans itself, is a wonder, dotted with colorful characters, and together, they propel a magical sceneContinue reading ““necessary city””
line into form
This is one of my prints from the Eviscera exhibit. My biggest copper plate piece yet…it was so fun to create this form. No expectations, free hand drawing and being in the moment.
Scientist and Printmaker, Janet Yagoda Shagam creates finely detailed prints with hints of the natural world, emotional turbulence and layers of process. She frequently uses multiple plates and techniques in combination to create an image. “Weathering” is a fundamental theme which she explores quite literally and conceptually. Simply extraordinary!

“This narrative continues to inform and confuse the practice.”
A quote from Mikolaj Smolinski describing themes in his artistic practice and work. Originally from Poland and now living in British Columbia – his work has the perfect balance of intellect and oddity! He participated in my 2008 print/stencil exchange and I hope he will do it again this year! Smolinski’s etchings are whimsical andContinue reading ““This narrative continues to inform and confuse the practice.””
