Mary Bookwalter's excellently integrated Tradigital Prints

I first came across Mary Bookwalter's work about a year ago and as a fellow printmaker remember feeling quite excited about the kinds of things, she was getting up to!. Mixing monoprint with inkjet, collagraph, hand stamping, woodcut, stencil...whatever worked. She initially displayed works with inkjet transfers, later with the traditional techniques worked directly into the inkjet.

Her work was featured in 2003, in an exhibition curated by Dorothy Simpson Krause of Digital Atelier. This show explored artists using inkjet as a major component of the artwork. The exhibition was called "Digitally Speaking"

Well worth checking out.
