About the Artist
My fascination has always been with the organic line of Nature, most specifically, the ocean. I both live and work on the Atlantic and have found it to be an infinite source of line, color, shape and composition. Drawing, painting and primarily printmaking have been my tools for the exploration of this natural subject matter.
Pathways to Awakening is a three-person exhibition including the works of Susan Newbold, Heidi Lewis Coleman and Stephanie Joyce. The works are meditative environments inspired by nature and sacred geometry. A variety of materials have been incorporated such as mylar, wood, Japanese rice papers, cut steel and Indian block prints. Working collaboratively, the artists’ studio sessions began with meditation and yoga, which opened the flow of creativity and the artwork took shape and form. In the spirit of yoga (which means to “yoke” or join) a Coptic-bound artists book was created for the exhibition, each artist exploring new mediums and finding their own pathways to awakening.

Three-Day Pronto Plate Printmaking Workshop with Artist Susan Newbold:
The use of Pronto Plates is an easy, and non-toxic lithographic method of printing. One can print images directly onto these plates with a copier or laser printer as well as draw directly on them with pens and markers. Once they are created, they can be inked and printed like a conventional prepared plate and can be used for printing editions. Additionally one can xerox photographs on to these plates. Students are asked to bring any drawings or photographs they would like to make into plates. The possibilities are infinite! Open to all levels.
