I just returned from a month of printmaking at Zea Mays Printmaking in Florence, Massachusetts. I learned about different ways of making marks and textures, as well as how to set up a studio in as healthy and non toxic manner as currently possible. I studied transfer drawing, monoprint, pronto plate and drypoint with Liz Chalfin, Joyce Silverstone, Nancy Diessner and Meredith Broberg. The studio is a wonderful sunlit airy place to work and I had a blast!
Now I am back in Brooklyn setting up my studio in a different space, and using what I learned at Zea Mays to make my own mini-non-toxic print studio. Photos to come!
