"Bimpe V" Miniprint 2008

Something or other took me over to the Bimpe Miniprint website and I thought I'd see if there had been any prints which integrated inkjet into the mix. I found three prints and include two of them here as one of them, by Jana Sasaki I had seen previously on the Bimpe website. In fact it's on here in my post for the 2007 Bimpe miniprint selection.

The 2 artists selected were Rosamond Norbury whose name I know I have come across before and Barb Snyder whose name is also familiar. I couldn't find a website or blog for either of these printmakers although I did find a little biographical information about Barb Snyder.

"Barb Snyder has a Bachelor of Science degree in Zoology from the University of B.C. and has taken numerous courses in Fine Arts through both U.B.C. and Emily Carr College of Art & Design. Barb has participated in many print shows at both Dundarave and Malaspina Printmakers and experiments with numerous forms of printmaking, in particular, working from personal photographs, often from nature."
