Monoprinting with Watercolours

This coming Saturday I'll be teaching a workshop at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia on the techniques that I used in my pieces that are on display in the show. (The class is full and there is a waiting list!!)
Here is a video tutorial showing how to make a watercolour monoprint. It is so much fun to do …… give it a try!

Tradition & Innovation- an exhibit that invites the viewer to think about print-making as an evolving art form- opens in the Community Room, Art Gallery of Nova Scotia Western Branch, on January 5 and continues until February 26, 2012.  An opening reception will be held Saturday, January 7, from 2 until 4 p.m.

Works are from the two print shops in South West Nova Scotia: La Manivelle in Church Point, where innovative, non-toxic methods are explored  and Th’YARC Print Shop in Yarmouth where etching is a traditional technique often used.

Print makers represented include Cecil Day, Ruth Rideout,  Denise Comeau, Bonnie Baker and others who have worked at one or both of the studios over the past decade.

Four workshops, tied to techniques in the show, will be given over the course of the two-month exhibit.


  1. Wow. What a beautiful video, and astonishing end result. You continue to dazzle your fans girl.

  2. Congrats on the show and FULL workshop.Wish I could take it--but it's a bit of a drive.

    I love that idea of combining gallery and workshops to learn the artists' techniques.
