Mixed Media Artist Diane Tompkinson will be at the gallery on Thursday, August 17, from 10AM to 5:30 PM with some of her print making tools. Although Diane works in mixed media, it is through printmaking that she is able to enjoy her love of painting, drawing, and carving. Growing up on the wooded bluffs and beaches of Puget Sound, Diane finds inspiration among the many birds and saltwater creatures found there. She has made a lifelong study of birds, especially raptors and crows. She enjoys creating a variety of printing plates using both organic and man-made materials.
