When most people think about printmaking, they usually think of a printing press. But monoprints are done by hand; and because they are done by hand, monoprints are considered the most painterly of all the printing techniques. They are essentially printed paintings. Linda discovered this technique many years ago while attending a workshop at the Mendocino Art Center. And the process has inspired her ever since.
In 2009 she became a member of the O’Hanlon Art Center in Mill Valley; and there, found the perfect setting for her to continue her love of hand printmaking. Recently retired from teaching, Linda now divides her time between working in the shared studios at the O’Hanlon Center and also working in her new home studio in Richmond. Her work has been shown at the O’Hanlon Center, the San Pablo Art Gallery, the Napa Library, the Finley Center in Santa Rosa and in other juried shows throughout the Bay Area.
