Earlier this summer I got to spend some time in Arlene Groch’s spanking new studio which I wrote about a couple of weeks ago.
Here’s what she’s been up to.
Arlene really took to screen printing on polymer clay, but she didn’t restrict her work to pieces with an Asian flavor. She tried screen printing on practically everything except her Grandchildren, often with stunning results.
And no one ever accused Arlene of being afraid of color. Her pieces are big, bold and colorful.
Recently, Arlene has gotten into caning. Well, I suppose a workshop with Bonnie Bishoff and Melanie West and hanging around fellow PAPCG member and caner extraordinaire Emily Squires Levine is bound to rub off. It will be interesting to see where Arlene goes from here.
This just in!

I love the patterns on her work. You are right, she is not afraid to use color. I should learn from her example.
Thank you for sharing!
