Trish reaches out in her local community and shares her techniques of art with neighborhood kids,
family youths and assists in arts and crafts with those who show a keen interest in the arts.
My current artistic practice is focused on printmaking and ceramics. I am a member artist at Studios on High Gallery in Columbus, Ohio, where I exhibit in both mediums. In the printmaking realm, I am most drawn to dry point etchings on acrylic and enjoy combining them with other techniques. I also create photopolymer gravure prints using light-sensitive metal plates (developed in plain water) and my own photographs and original drawings and combining these prints with graphite and charcoal. I am also a printmaking instructor at the Columbus Cultural Arts Center. The instructors and students all use non-toxic methods and materials for printmaking, and we are all conscious of reusing supplies and conserving our materials to the greatest extent possible. I ink and print all of my images by hand in small editions.

I love black and white photography, and I love to shoot film. I am the dinosaur in the camera club that still shoots film.
