Joan Wortis began printing at Quartermaster Press soon after she arrived on Vashon Island. Her career and background before she came to print was in fiber arts.
She says that her experince at QMP has been the cornerstone of her working method of experimenting with combining monotype and collage and she has continued to do that through many different iterations for the last 20 plus years.
Joan's wonderfully textural monotype collage "Whispered Secrets" 15 x 12 in. is one of the works showing at the Quartermaster Press 25 Retrospective Exhibition in the Koch Gallery at Vashon Center for the Arts April 6 - May 25, 2018.
