“I am a 40-year Madison resident of Mount Washington Valley, a place I deeply love to be living in. I have been making art in since I was a small child. I can’t seem to stop! Because I believe that making art is good for the soul, over the years I have taught art classes in many media to people of all ages. Since retiring from my job as Library Director of Cook Memorial Library, I treasure my increased free time for creating.
I spent time at Haystack School of Crafts in Deer Isle, Maine this last August. This exhibition of gelatin prints includes both my work and the work of other Haystack students. Gelatin prints are monotypes, one-offs; some are modified by added media applications, such as collage, colored pencils, inks and paints. My gelatin prints are inspired by memories, imagination, and occasionally my photos.
Because I am intending to teach a series of classes this fall and winter, including one on gelatin printing in January, I want my prospective students to get an idea of the range of effects that printing on gelatin can produce.”
