Asheville Print studio is a light filled large print studio engaged in safer and non-toxic processes and practices. We offer classes, workshops, collaborations and rent press time. The visitor will be able to see a multitude of print processes including Mono prints, wood and linoleum prints, Mokulito (Lithography done a wooden plate instead of limestone), solar-plate (waterbased photo polymer plates) as well as mixed media collage works and printed work on fabric.
In my personal work the extensive possibilities of the medium and ‘the dance’ at the press—that push/pull that happens as I apply and subtract ink, texture and image is the driving force behind most of the work that gets created in the studio. 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.
