Viza - I finally got more comfortable with hi-tech and this year started a blog:


It's nice to be able to change and update rather than having a static website. I check on yours once in a while to see what your up to. I really enjoy your white line woodcuts - I have never done one - and your bamboo print(s) are fabulous. Keep at it, you are doing fine work!

Do you have a video of you doing one of your bubble drawings? If not, I think you should make one. If so, I would love a link to it. This process is fascinating!

oh my god! How nice to see the bubbles. I had made them too with photoinks, but my bubbles were a little blurred, and not as crisp as yours. I love the technique too! And I had never seen it anywhere till I saw this work of yours. So that feels good!

I absolutely love this image. I write poetry and this goes just perfectly with one I have about elusive, leaping foxes! If I ever get round to making the poem into a postcard, would you be happy to discuss using your image, and on what terms? Best wishes, Claudia
