The Art of Monotype Studio

From May of 1994 through December of 2006, I owned and operated the Art of Monotype
Studio at 11 Pleasant St. Gloucester, MA. This studio was dedicated to the making of
unique prints, and to teaching “The Art of Monotype” and other related classes. It was a
gathering place and workplace for printmakers throughout the Northshore of Boston to
make monotypes and share ideas and inspiration with one another. It was born out of
a 23-year vision. During that time, over 50 professional and non-professional artists
made prints here.
