More about the Artists

Stephanie Martin is currently exhibiting her etchings at the Helen Crocker Library of Horticulture at San Francisco Botanical Garden. She studied botany in college, and after a career in education, took up art in 2004. Her recent series of etchings depicts the flora and avifauna of California. She sketches birds and nests at natural history museums, and finds botanical subjects in wild and cultivated gardens. Stephanie is always excited to introduce others to the fascinating process of printmaking. You can see her artwork at

This one-day workshop will be co-taught by Stacy Frank, daughter of long-time Chronicle cartoonist Phil Frank who penned the comic strip Farley. Her 20 years of printmaking experience is paired with a pragmatic and gentle teaching manner. With training in scientific illustration, she is an enthusiastic studio artist who loves to share the joy of printmaking, especially the drypoint technique taught in this workshop.
