Frogman's 2017
7/9/2017


Just got back from another amazing week at Frogman's Print Workshop hosted by the University of Nebraska Omaha. This year, I took Photopolymer Intaglio with Mary Jones; Des Moines printmaker, educator and all around excellent lady. I'm excited to use this new process in my work... it's a great mix of hand-pulled and digital work that could really expand the type of images I use. 
EVERYBODY should take a look at Frogman's curriculum- they offer unparalled print faculty teaching specialty courses in a wide variety of print media every summer.

"Star-Crossed Lovers" Print Exchange at St. Ambrose University
2/9/2017


I am extra pleased to participate in "Star-Crossed Lovers", a printmaking exhibition and exchange hosted by St. Ambrose University in Davenport, IA. This exhibition is included as part of SAU’s 2016-17 Shakespeare Project.  Based on the participants, it should be a dynamic portfolio of work by lots of familiar (Iowa!) names. Another Iowa alumni, Alison Filley, curated and coordinated this exchange.
