A month of printmaking at Zea Mays

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!
