Monoprint Collage Workshop

Last weekend I took another workshop with Jane Davies at the Pacific Northwest Art School on Whidbey Island. It was a Monoprint Collage class using the gelli plate. I highly recommend any of her workshops but you have to sign up early because she sells out really fast, online and onsite. I made 14 paintings in 2 days, some of them unfinished, some of them I will probably just leave as is or add a little collage here and there. This was such a fun class that it inspired me to sign up for the Port Townsend Studio Tour on August 23rd and 24th and open my studio to demo this technique. Stay tuned for more info as it gets closer to the date.

Recipe Tea Towel Contest

This is my entry for the Recipe Tea Towel Contest on Spoonflower. Here's the contest guidelines: "No matter where you live in the world, nothing spells comfort like a home cooked meal from your mom or grandmother. Celebrate the important culinary women in your life this Mother's Day by designing a lovely recipe just like mom used to make." I decided to use my grandmother's recipe because she was such an inspiration to me, not only was she an amazing cook, she was also an incredibly talented seamstress. This is a french canadian version of a "trifle' that she called "bagatelle". You can vote here! Thank you for your support!
