In this exercise each participant will have a piece of printfoam to make their own images, marks, or symbols that represent them or their family.  Each participant will print a piece to take home and share with family.

The larger collaborative project will be a large piece of paper that can represent the community of families or individuals that participated in the workshop. On this paper we will print each participant’s printfoam to make a community piece.

Artist Statement

There are no hard fast rules but most always the men and women in my paintings are constructed from found images.  Faces will come from one source, bodies from another.  Backgrounds vary, sometimes rooms are decorated with imagined wallpaper, thirties era cartoons, or subway platforms.  Still the work rests on an individual face and the people are stopped in a moment of thought, as we are when going from one place to another.
