Ghostly color prints are made using a method evocative to that of William Henry Fox Talbot, who made camera-less images of botanical specimens in the 1830′s. These distinctive prints are made outdoors using direct sunlight, plant specimens, black and white photographic paper and chemical fixing. Each unique image is a one of a kind print revealing an astonishing array of images from representational to absolute abstractions of color, shape, and form that celebrate beauty and uniqueness of nature.
 Recommended age 8+

About the instructor:
I started out as a self-taught artist, drawing, painting, writing books and fashion designing on my own as a child. I was very prolific and self-motivated. It is fascinating to look back on my childhood art, as there are a lot of similar themes in my art now including dwellings, animals, modes of transportation and people. I am interested in how people behave (or misbehave) and seek patterns and connections through synchronicity, the subconscious, history, memory and alchemy. Working with paint and ink are my primary mediums, though I dabble in sculpture and textiles as well. I am currently writing a children’s book and love teaching people of all ages. My art is in collections throughout the world including South Africa, New Zealand, Europe and Canada.

All workshops take place at KALEID.
