Last Day with Kay Healy!! (pictures speak a bunch of words)

So I finished up my last day with Kay last week, and to tell you the truth, I was really excited! Not to be done of course, but it was the first time I had really thought about what I had got out of my experience with her this summer. There was so much going on that I had forgotten to just take the time and appreciate all the different opportunities that came up.
 I was excited because working with Kay gave me the opportunity to work alongside two local artists, and to get a vision of how they approach their own work, and how they are able to focus on what they do whilst spending time together in the studio that they share! 

A finished piece, Tracy's chair! To be included in Kay's 60ft installation in the Free Library next year!

Some Studio Pix!

Kay shares a studio with her (newlywed!) husband Greg Pizzoli. It was really interesting getting to see a couple who work as artists, and are able to spend so much time together! 


Welcome couch

View from the welcome couch.

They had the left window installed this year, there was only one when I first saw the studio. It looks so much better with two. 

Printing room!

Drying Rack

SPRAY BOOTH. Just a walk down the hall, this is where I would reclaim screens by spraying them with chemicals and cleaning them out with a power washer.  

Taping brand new screens! This way water doesn't get underneath/inbetween the aluminum and the screen when you clean it.  

No water here...

Making 2 layer prints of Tomatoes!! 

Green linework...

Lay down the acetate with Red already printed to make sure the fabric is in the right spot...


Lift it up and PRINT.



Lining it up...



It's important to put all of your muscle into the pull. 

 It's good to pull it several times to make sure enough ink goes through. Especially on fabric!

The ink prints a bit darker on the fabric than on the acetate, if you compare the linework on these finished bottles to that of the picture above. 

Overall, I'm excited about the time I got to spend this summer with Kay, and I look forward to how she has influenced me to come forth in my own work. I'm already thinking about different ways to incorporate my newly honed sewing skills, plus I can't wait to get my hands on my own screen so that I can start screen printing designs and drawings of my own!!
There was also a point during the summer, I remember washing out a screen that was flooded with purple ink, and I remember vividly that color of purple, just a hint of compliment and enough white to make it a very soft and summery lilac, and how much I enjoyed the palette that Kay used. I hope to incorporate that homely, soft, and welcoming palette in my own work too.
So when I say I'm excited, I am! The summer's almost over, and it's time to learn new things at school, meet more new people, and start using all the awesome things I was able to learn with and from Kay. I can't wait incorporate what I've learned and experienced into my own work!
