As we approach our tenth anniversary we’re delighted to feature the artwork of one of our own staff members, Circulation Assistant Sonia Rodríguez. In the previous five years Sonia has taught elementary school art for the Klein district. While at the Rhode Island School of Design, Sonia experienced working in a variety of media. Included in her display are a series of woodblock prints,etchings, and paintings depicting both human and animal nature.
Most people who create woodblock prints print them in a hand operated press. The print you see in the image at left was created under a steam roller! Sonia thinks outside the box and is not afraid to experiment.
She currently continues her practice in an independent studio in Spring.
