Pamela Martinez has been teaching, studying, and practicing the ancient art of marbling over ten years and is a member of the Sumi-E Society. She provides Suminagashi workshops for the Sumi-E Society and Gilda’s Club, and instruction at the Botanic Garden in Glencoe, as well as individual lessons. Ms. Martinez believes the spiritual practice of Suminagashi teaches the importance of self-expression, provides the mystery of an undetermined result, and includes the use of various techniques to challenge the imagination.
