I'm going to be a guest instructor at Oehme Graphics!  

The class is Delicate Relief Carving: Linoleum Blocks and will be on August 19th, 10 - 4 pm at Oehme Graphics, 2655 Copper Ridge Circle, Unit 1, Steamboat Springs, CO 80487

Along with master printer Susan Oehme, I will teach block carving techniques and assist students in bringing their images to life through the block printing process. 

Students are encouraged to bring a sketch of the image they want to create or at least an idea. We will be working on 9 x 12 inch blocks, printed with oil based rolled ink. The cost is $100, which includes your block, inks and 2 sheets of paper. For this class we're expanding the enrollment to 10 students. 

Please bring a packed lunch and a creative spirit!

To register for this very special Studio Sunday, please call Oehme Graphics at 970-870-6609 or email sue@oehmegraphics.com

 

 

My first adventures with printmaking involved potatoes, a razor blade, and acrylic paint. But even working that low-tech, I knew I'd discovered the best thing in the whole world, relief prints. Now I mostly carve linocuts that I print by hand, and often paint with watercolor. 

I've had the opportunity to create work for Friends of the Yampa, The Yampa Valley Sustainability Council, The Bud Werner Library, Steamboat Sotheby's and the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club as well as private clients. My prints and greeting cards have been featured in many galleries and gift shops.

I live in Steamboat Springs, Colorado and I’m influenced by the beautiful landscape around me. One of my favorite things to do is walk with my husband, our daughter, and our dog around this pretty valley.
