I had a long career as a registered Nurse both in the allopathic as well as the alternative healthcare field. As my interest in healing lead me to focus more on preventive healthcare I obtained certifications for Yoga Instructor, Massage Therapist, Reiko Therapist and Chinese healing Art Work.
In 2005 after the sudden loss of my longtime friend and husband, Dick R. Wittink, I took my first course in printmaking as a self-prescribed form of therapy. I enrolled in Printmaking course taught by master printer Barbara Harder at the Creative Arts Workshop in New Haven.
Barbara understood my need for space and care while introducing me to the various forms of printmaking and soon I found my love for creating Monotype prints and exploring with color, shape and collage.
In 2011 I continued to develop a greater sense of depth through layering with colors and using space in larger prints under the mentorship of Liz Pagano.
While working in Liz’s private studio, I have found a true blend of meditative Yoga and Healing effects in the Art of Printmaking while I continue to push my boundaries in mixed media.
