Artist in Residence

Recently, my husband, David Showalter, and I were the Artists in Residence at the Caribbean Museum Center for the Arts.  We were in residence during March 2016 for the entire month and we had a wonderful, magical time.  Pictured below is the new body of work that I created during our stay.  These works on paper are all cyanotypes, an alternative photo process invented in 1842 by Sir John Herschel.  Some of these are single exposure, some are double and there are even a couple that were exposed three times.

These works will soon be on exhibition at The Blue Mutt in Christiansted, St Croix, USVI on April 26, 2016 for a joint show with David Showalter.  If you are in Christiansted at that time go visit the gallery and have a look!

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.

Hello friends!

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.
