Starting Northern ReExposure with my mother, Mara has been a great experience. There has been so much new information to learn and a lot of hard work from the beginning to where we are today.
Mara is the one who creates the artwork. I produce the tiles, coasters and other products you see in our store from her artwork. The imprinting is accomplished using a special printer, special sublimation transfer inks and paper, and a heat press. I won’t go into a lot of technical descriptions because I am not a technical person. I just know how to do this process, it works and the results are stunning. I learn something new every day. It is so exciting to see how each painting transfers to the different surfaces.
I once imprinted an entire 5 foot tall watercolor painting onto a 3″ x 6″ tile and it turned out amazing. Next time I will tell you about the wooden napkin holder.
My grandson’s father, Shae used to call us “Big” M and “Lil” M so I will sign off from now on as… “Lil” M
