Holly Foss ~ Printmaking     NEWARTIST!
Minneapolis, MN ~ Booth #719

“For many years I have been a printmaker, creating serigraphs.  To make my serigraphs I begin with a drawing in pencil. I then ink it with a very thin black line. For each color I cut a stencil from a green lacquer film. This film gets adhered into a screen of tightly stretched material. Because silk is used, it is commonly called silk-screening. Today a stronger material is used.  I then hand squeegee one color at a time; carefully registering each screen on Stonehenge Fine Art Paper. I sign and number my limited editions. Each print is an original.”  — Holly Foss
