Ever wondered how a linoleum print was made? During the demo, Kari will verbally walk you through the steps of preparing a piece of lino for printing, then during the demo will show how the lino is inked up and run through the etching press, creating a unique impression every time.
Kari Kristensen is a contemporary Canadian printmaker who lives and works in Vancouver, British Columbia. After moving from Ontario, Kristensen was taken by the beauty of the west coast Canadian landscape. As a result her linoleum prints are referential to the mountains and natural landscapes of Vancouver. After completing her degree at the University of Guelph in Art History and Classical Studies, Kristensen went on to exhibit at Dundarave Print Shop on Granville Island in Vancouver and is a member of the Art Rental and Sales department of the Vancouver Art Gallery. Kristensen’s prints have also been involved in collaborations with other, local entities such as Six Hundred Four Shoes, where one of her prints is on limited edition, artist-designed sneakers.
