I am very proud and pleased to announce that my husband, fellow artist David Showalter, and I have been chosen to be Artists in Residence at the Caribbean Museum Center for the Arts in Frederiksted, St Croix, USVI!! We will be on island from March 1-April 4, making new work, leading workshops, and performing a technique demonstration for the Artist Guild. Time slows for no man, or woman, and the clock is ticking down towards March. We have only 42 more days to reach our goal for our Artist in Residence program at CMCA in St Croix! You can help out with you your donation to our GoFundMe campaign! We have excellent donor perks and, as always, we thank you all very much for your continued support.
Do you like my work? Would you love to buy some of it? Now you can make your purchase from Artistically Social, a new online artists community found here. Of course, you can always purchase directly from me via PayPal or Stripe. Thanks and happy shopping!
I have some new work in progress; I wanted to try my hand at reduction woodcuts so here are some photographs of my process/progress. Reduction prints are color prints done on one block as opposed to cutting a new block for each color and printing that. I just printed my third color on this image last night. The registration is “interesting” but I like the slight variations I’m getting on each print.
Today I am going to Maryland Art Place (MAP) to hang this drawing in “Out of Order” http://www.mdartplace.org/
These are a series of prints I did from images of late 19th-early 20th century erotica. They are all linocuts (a method of relief printing) on kitikata (a type of Japanese rice paper which lends itself well to relief printing). I love the marriage of the graphic nature of the images to the graphic quality of this particular printing medium.
