A note from Kathie about printmaking:
When my dear childhood friend invited me over to play about in her new print studio, I had no idea that I would be embarking on an obsessive but joyful journey into the world of printmaking. The process of transferring creative thought to paper, to linoleum, and then carving the block is a labor of love. The excitement of pulling the first print… and the next twenty is hard to beat. There is beauty in the imperfection, challenge in letting that ‘blemish’ stand and marvel in the few that come out just the way I imagined! Self-taught, I mainly make frameable relief prints, sometimes inspired by the poems I write, but also create greeting cards, notebooks and other small items.
I am so happy to share my love of this art form and look forward to encouraging the latent creativity in others to shine.
