I'm looking forward to my upcoming artist talk and demo at the Sarah Silberman Gallery, Paul Peck Art Building, Montgomery College, Rockville Campus.
This project was installed at Howard County Center for the Arts Annual Resident Artists Exhibition in May - June 2015. The fungi pieces are screenprint monotypes, cut out and shaped to pop out like shelf fungi.

I'm offering a Block Printing on Fabric workshop Saturday, September 21 at the Howard County Center for the Arts, in Ellicott City.
Block Printing on Fabric: Design and Print a Unique Scarf
Saturday, September 21, 10 a.m. - 1 p.m., $60, materials included. Register here.
Carve your own unique design into soft rubber, then use fabric inks to print the design on a jersey-knit scarf. Participants walk away with a hand-carved stamp, for continued use on fabric or paper, and two block-printed scarves that are ready to wear after a quick iron.
Learn to transfer a design to the block.
Carve away lines, negative spaces, and unwanted material to create the stamp.
Then, print on a jersey-knit scarf--great to wear yourself or give as a unique gift!
Just a few of the beautiful colors available for the scarves.
You're also welcome to bring your own fabrics to print on, such as tea towels, cloth napkins, clothing, quilt blocks or other materials to sew. The possibilities are endless!
All materials are included, but it's a good idea to bring a photo or sketch to use as inspiration. The registration link is on my workshops page. Hope you'll join me!
I'm a woodblock printmaker who is committed to a non-toxic (or less toxic) art practice. I started out as a painter but found my way to printmaking through a love of paper and process. I seem to be falling for papermaking in the same way. I went to Syracuse University, where I studied painting (BFA) and museum studies (MA). I am a Resident Artist at the Howard County Center for the Arts. My husband Christian and I live in Baltimore with our two beautiful children. This blog is for posting works-in-progress and new works, as well as a few creative projects I've done with my kids.
