Sara Froese's Accolade
I had the pleasure of meeting Don in 2013 when he was moving on from his printing business to pursue more time with his endeavours in the film industry.
Having studied printmaking briefly in a Fine Arts program in London, Ontario, I had long dreamt of having my own studio and printing equipment to create my work. My meeting with Don was the answer.
I now own and operate a small printing shop out of industrial Hamilton, Ontario, using the majority of Don's former equipment. I print custom work for a broad clientele, as well as creating my own personal print work. I've taught workshops in London and Hamilton, sharing my knowledge of relief printing and bookbinding with the local community, and have taken part in organizing a yearly event showcasing local artists' talent.
I have received recognition in the Globe & Mail, The Hamilton Spectator, as well as being featured on Hamilton CHCH TV.
I would definitely not be where I am today without Don's incredible generosity, support and encouragement along the way, for which I'm immeasurably thankful.
