My studio was all dressed up for the reception and open studio event in June, so I took a few pictures. This is where the magic happens. It is a great place to work!
The Resident Visual Artist Exhibition is on display at the Howard County Center for the Arts through June 23, 2013. This is a great chance to see what all the resident artists have been working on in their studios. Come check it out! Also, please mark your calendars for the closing reception, June 20, from 6 to 8 p.m., with open studios from 7 to 8 p.m.
This woodblock print is one of 5 pieces I have in the show. It is based on a view of the Niagara River, in Niagara Falls, NY. The artwork is printed from one Shina woodblock. It was printed using the reduction method, in which a single block is carved and printed in stages.

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 was a Resident Artist at the Howard County Center for the Arts for five years and previously worked at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. This blog is for posting works-in-progress and new works, as well as a few creative projects I've done with my kids.
