I won an award for this drawing "Marshall Point Lighthouse" at the Michigan Colored Pencil Plus Exhibit which runs through May 30, 2013 at the Birmingham Unitarian Church in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. The Colored Pencil Society of America -  Detroit District Chapter #104 put on this exhibit.
This was a very nice exhibit. It had a wide variety of very beautiful colored pencil drawings to see.

Turkish Paper Marbling Workshop

   In the 15th century, Persians and Turks used a thickened water and combed their designs in a process called "Ebru". It spread around Europe but it was not until the 19th century that written instructions about the marbling process was available. The craft became an obscure book art in this country until the craft movement in the 1970's.
   I have been paper marbling for 20 years and teach marbling classes at my studio. If you would like to try the fun art of Paper Marbling please contact me at my website at
