Asheville Print studio is engaged in safer and non-toxic processes and practices. Mono-printing and mono-types, Mokulito (Lithography done a wooden plate instead of limestone), solar-plate (waterbased photoplymer plates)and Mokuhnaga ( woodblocks) as well as mixed media collage works.

I am endlessly fascinated by the myriad possibilities of my medium and enjoy what I call ‘the dance’ at the press—that push/pull that happens as I apply and subtract ink, texture and image. Sometimes the work is meticulously planned, other times the images miraculously appear. I have a deep interest in the figurative and the natural world as well as the decaying urban cityscape. My work often skirts between realism and abstraction but I have always had a love of collage, layering and assemblage. My early training included a BFA from School of Visual Arts and an MFA from Rochester Institute of Technology. As a retired NYC art educator I would like to offer nurturing and inclusive workshops for all levels of learners interested in making prints safely.
