How about a brief introduction?
I am an artist, gallery owner and curator of exhibits. I also have been teaching art in my own little school for the past 18 years.
What made Gocco so special for you?
I first used a Gocco machine in college in the late 70’s. It was introduced to me by my mentor who had us silkscreening in every possible form.
Any tips on using a Gocco that you’d like to share?
Try mixing up your own new colors on a piece of glass with a palette knife! Then apply gently to the screen.
What’s your biggest accomplishment to date?
The LARGEST accomplishment to date was a 15 foot by 5 foot banner I hand painted for a friend’s wedding this past August.
Share something random with us!
I really love a good campfire, especially in my own backyard!
