About the Book: Art & Sacred Sites: Connecting with Spirit of Place
This book is about my pilgrimages to sacred sites - a sharing of my experiences, inspirations, and the creative process “As my travels became spiritual journeys, each one bore a new wave of creativity in the studio.” I feel blessed that I’ve had the opportunity to walk the perimeter of Uluru in Australia, enter the sacred chamber of Newgrange in Ireland, visit the Temple of Knossos in Crete and to walk the stones of Las Labradas, near my home in Mazatlán, Mexico.
Created in collaboration with book designer, Margery Cantor, this book contains beautiful spreads in full color of artwork, photos of the sites that inspired the artist and personal observations written especially for each of the ten chapters.
Limited edition, hard-cover, 90 pages, 11" x 13".

About the Workshop: Monotype is a one-of-a-kind print created by applying ink to a plate and transferring the image to paper with the use of an etching press. This workshop covers basic studio practices from preparation of paper to how to use the etching press with techniques in additive, subtractive, roll-up, drypoint, stencil, and multiple color registration. Individual attention will be given to each person, guiding them in the process that suits their vision.
Creating a Monotype is a magical process and allows for one’s creativity to flow in unexpected directions. The workshop is suitable for beginner to advanced artists.
