About the instructors:

Nena Braathen

“For centuries artists have been printmaking and I enjoy the wonder of continuing with this tradition of creating a print by hand.”

Graduated from the Vancouver School of Art majoring in creative printmaking in 1968. Received scholarship from the Institute Allende in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico to continue to develop in the printmaking medium. Has resided since 1972 on the Sunshine Coast where she has a home-based printmaking studio. Nena exhibits locally, provincially and nationally.

Janice McFegan

“Painting at Coopers Green or la Manzanilla, carving Lino, printing monotypes, etching copper on my deck, something is always created. Music runs through my head so I try and capture the sound, the movement, the beauty, the magic. Trained at Emily Carr, BFA, printmaking major, then graduate progra, with master printer Wayne Eastcott, The Art Institute, now working in my home studio. My work has been accepted in juried exhibitions locally, regionally and internationally. New York actor Jay Saunders purchased an etching to use on his Broadway Play about water.”
