So pleased to have been part of the early wave of female Texas artists that were invited to work at Flatbed Press in Austin. I used to do a lot of printmaking when I lived in Austin and Director Katherine Brimberry’s enthusiasm for all things printed was contagious-Hope to be able to work with her again. Robert Faires of the Austin Chronicle wrote a great article about the show “WOMEN OF FLATBED: A RETROSPECTIVE” which is currently on view at the Elisabet Ney Museum in Austin.
