Patricia Sundgren Smith and Tom Kingshill
Featured Artists for April 2017
Patricia Sundgren Smith: "I wanted to do something life-affirming and uplifting in the new year, so I've been focusing on birds and birds' nest imagery. I've been using two of my favorite techniques -- linocut printmaking and drawing with Prismacolor, graphite, and ink. I hope that viewers will enjoy the images as much as I did in making them."
