Kimberlee Rocca is a pioneer in the newly discovered art technique of Foil Imaging. As one of the first
artists to study Foil Imaging, Kimberlee is a premier contributor to the development of this cutting edge
art form. You can find her technique discoveries and artistic contributions published in the first book ever
written about the process, “Foil Imaging – A New Art Form”. When you speak with her about the virtually unknown
methods of application, you gain a deeper understanding of the significance of her innovations in the history of
printmaking and art.
Kimberlee says: “My art reflects struggles and victories in my own life by use of abstract works and figures. I put to paper the very nature of the desire to discover and become who I am meant to be. The results are works filled with life, promise, hope, joy, strength and purpose. We are all here to help and encourage one another; my purpose is to do that through my art work”
Tim says: "I have been developing methods for using foils for 22yrs. My approach has been primarily abstract fine art. Foils are incorporated into existing medias, and new medias that I have invented. Some of my work can be seen on TimRockMan.com and on ArtWanted.com."

Michelle says: The evolution of my art work surprises even me. By working in a series or theme of generally 30-50 works, I exhaust an idea until it feels "finished." Initially, I create rudimentary drawings which helps me find the most salient aspect of an idea or object. I discard the details, until I am left with an abstract idea that contains the most important "essence."

Ana Golici is an artist/lithographer formerly of the Podul printmaking workshop in Romania. Golici came to the USA in 1987 where she continued her study of lithography with Bob Blackburn at the Printmaking Workshop. The New York cultural atmosphere inspired Golici, heightening the pace of her creative process: she started to experiment with Xerox transfers, on stone, on paper, on anything. Later, the computer proved to be the most efficient and effective tool for developing her ideas. Ana creates her work using Photoshop, printing large format images on a variety of papers, and experimenting most of the time. Because ofGolici’s traditional printmaking background, the digital prints she creates do not look like digital prints. She has participated in many printmaking biennials and triennials in Europe, USA, and Asia. Her work has been exhibited in New York Hall of Science, Hunter College Times Square Gallery, East-West Gallery in NY, and IPCNY. She has works in the Library of Congress Collection and in private collections in Europe and USA.
