I was so delighted that my monoprint from the series, Scenes from Above: The Devin Prints—this one entitled Doppelgänger— was chosen as the book cover for From Trauma to Healing: A Social Worker’s Guide to Working with Survivors written by Dr. Ann Goelitz with Abigail Stewart-Kahn.
It was a fun and unique experience when I studied with the printmaker MITCH LYONS who invented CLAY PRINTMAKING. This technique of printing uses colored clay. The plate (or matrix) is a slab of wet clay and china clay slip with organic pigments are used as the "ink". The slip is applied to the wet slab using a variety of techniques

He was an extraordinary teacher…and his two books (Learning to Draw and Experimental Drawing ) are like him, catalysts that push artists to go beyond the boundaries of mediums and convention.
This is my first post on my new website which was created by #ElizabethWentlingelizabethwentling.com — who with sensitivity and skill photographed all the images you see and made this website “rock”! Thank you Elizabeth! What a great pleasure you are to work with and a consummate professional!
