Joanne Boudreau is an Ashby, MA artist. She writes:
"I have painted all my life, mostly in watercolor and pastel. I have dabbled in printmaking through the years and after recently attending a very fun and informative Printmaking with Pastel workshop with Alexia Rosoff Wilber, I began incorporating my love of Monoprints with pastel painting. I have been working with simple subjects and really enjoy this method. I start with a charcoal drawing transferred to a gel plate that I add more drawing and values with water soluble ink. After this Monoprint is dry, I use pan pastels with a limited palette to add color and adjust the values.
