Karen Gilbank

Karen takes inspiration from the rural countryside of Wisconsin and its animal inhabitants and then depicts her observations through printmaking. This allows her to explore different techniques, including multiple drop monotypes, relief, intaglio, and solarplates.

Lynn Barber

Watercolor batiks on rice paper. Batik is a technique of layering wax and watercolors to produce varying shades of color. Lynn uses Ginwashi rice paper, a semi-transparent paper with small fibers running through it. “This paper gives the batiks a wonderful texture and a unique natural look,” Lynn said. “The edges are deckled, which gives the batik a feathery finish.” Visit Lynn’s website: naturesartstudio.weebly.com/.
