Dona Reed - "I am a maker! I think in black and white. I use strong graphic lines, bold shapes and textures to express the essence of my subjects. This is perfect for relief printmaking. Creating both 2 and 3 dimensional work requires a different thought process. That's why I like to work with carved gourds or assemblage' as a change of pace. What can go wrong with collecting junk to use in my finished artwork?"
Mark Gardner - "Following in a long tradition of fine-art photographers, I use the camera and the digital darkroom to create images that interpret what I see around me. I tend to photograph whatever I'm curious about. So my subjects range across a wide spectrum that includes people, culture and nature. My process starts with finding or creating strong compositions that I capture with my camera. To me, these are a starting point from which I create engaging, evocative images. Sometimes these reflect just what I see. Sometimes they show what I would like to see. But they always show how I feel. Once created in the digital darkroom, my images are printed on archival papers with pigment inks to create the final photograph."
