Eco Printing is a contact print process developed by India Flint. Plants are layered between pages of paper, bound together, and boiled or steamed in a dye bath to create the transfer of the plants to the paper. I am fascinated by the process. I have dabbled in it for a couple of years, but seriously starting researching, experimenting, and using it at an artform in fall 2019. I cannot walk past a beautiful leaf without grabbing it up! I have been known to stop and collect leaves at libraries, rest areas, parks, and just walking down the street! I cannot wait to open the little bundles to see what surprises await me!

Mixed media is the use of more than one art medium (ink, watercolor, acrylic, oil, plaster, wax, etc) in a single work.
Mixed media can be on paper, canvas, wood panels, concrete, walls, it can be a 3D sculpture, and more.
The mixed media classes that I teach are usually based on paper and combine ink (pen) with brush markers, water color, or other types of ink. Perfect for art journals.

I also teach basic bookmaking classes. I prefer books with the open spine so you can see the beautiful stitches we create :) In a bookmaking class you will learn:
