Debbie Koppman’s work in sculpture, hand-made paper, and printmaking is created with an eye towards installation and collaboration. Koppman creates collaborative painted and tile murals in the Bay Area. Koppman is an educator as well as an artist. She began teaching college students in Mexico in 1987, taught children in Oakland from 1998-2016, wrote reviews and previews for Artweek from 1997 until its demise in 2009, created sets, masks, and puppets for several theater projects, and has worked on public and private mural projects for the last 11 years.

Oakland resident Luz Marina Ruiz is best known for her ability to transform 2D prints (linocuts, collagraphs, etchings, and monotypes) into sculptural artists’ books and installations. Her playful and whimsical work is inspired by the world of dreams and nature. She works in a variety of media: drawing, painting, mixed media, printmaking, book arts, and installation. Intrigued by the experimental nature of printmaking, she employs many printmaking approaches to her work: gouging, scratching, collaging and layering pigment to achieve highly textured surfaces. She currently teaches at California College of the Arts.
