Bonnie Star Marsh - September 2018 - Hawaii - USA

Gratefulness and admiration is what I feel towards the artists who visit me in my studio in Gran Canaria to learn or improve the processes of electro-etching. Especially since they usually come from countries that are quite far from the Canary Islands.
