This is my newest pairing of etchings with an historical postcard and was part of a two-woman show at Devon House Gallery in August 2017 called “Ephemera”–as was the monoprint at the bottom of this page. This etching was created on an aluminum plate (see my workshop below).
This February, I’ve cleared my calendar to get back to writing and illustrating my second comic book about the sinking of the S.S. Caribou on October 14th, 1942, Lifeboats Down to be released by Breakwater Books in the fall of this year. (If you had a relative on the S.S. Caribou that night, please check out my page “S.S. Caribou: Passengers & Crew 14/10/1942”.)
Meanwhile, keep your eyes open for Morgan’s Printing Pop-up Press moments! I will keep updating my FaceBook page and this webpage.
If you are interested buying anything you’ve seen at a show or craft fair, my work is available at the Red Ochre Gallery, 96 Duckworth Street, St. John’s, NL: http://www.redochregallery.ca and Devon House Gallery.
