About the Instructor
Martha Makosky discovered printmaking when she moved to Bainbridge in 2002. She found it integrated all the art skills she had been playing with since childhood in a magical dialogue with the press. Since then she has continued to learn and experiment with a wide variety of printmaking methods.
Martha has enjoyed taking classes and workshops with master printers in Seattle, and she has traveled to Mexico to learn etching and lithography techniques in the Oaxacan tradition. For Martha collecting and combining different ways of making images keeps prompting discovery. Her prints usually involve layering and may include drawing, painting, collaging, stenciling, etching, and other various types of image transfer processes.
