Printmaking — whether intaglio, lithography, silkscreen, woodcuts, or other formats — is a process of transferring a drawing to a form of relief and then to multiple hand-made images. At its core is drawing and color, although photography is often used now as well. As with other fine arts media, this is a personal and expressive art form driven by the artist’s individual interests. Work is usually sold through galleries and other commercial venues, and will also appear in museums.

“I feel the impact of the PAFA experience on my growth as an artist transcends the obvious: sharpening skills, acquiring tools and learning a great deal from lectures and discussions,” states Hofshi. “I think it was after the second year at PAFA, when I realized that my artwork and ongoing research were a way of life and part of me, and not just a mode of expression. I understood both my personal circumstances and the wide array of local and international events are inherent in my creative process.”
