Jill at Open Studio was especially generous helping mastermind the best ways to produce my bookwork during my residency. She she brought her wisdom and experience to the planning of the project, and had thought of every possibility and every detail. I was perfectly matched with the hard-working and skillful Nadine Bariteau. We had lots of fun experimenting with different colours. Every new print felt like a celebration. – Benny Nemerofsky Ramsay, Visiting Artist 2009
