Avis Saltsman was a painter and teacher before turning to printmaking in 1981, printing full-time since 1986. These prints use the hand-printing techniques of silk-screen, etching, and collograph with the artist performing all parts of the processes, which require a great deal of forward planning, careful measurement and skill. All the prints are produced using paper and oil-based inks of a professional standard.

She now also lectures on Modern (early 20th Century) Art Movements.
