Les and Jill have been taking printmaking classes at Lake Tahoe Community College.  Here are some of the better Relief and Intaglio prints we have Produced.

art is a living Thing.

We experience life through making art 

This work covers the last couple of years, much of which Les is creating fine platinum prints.


Quail Run Art is a collaboration of the husband and wife team of Les Allert and Jill Miller-Allert.  Married since 1980, they met while working as Park Rangers for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  Their 30 year careers with the Federal government also included time working for the National Park Service and the Bureau of Land Management.  They now reside on the east side of the Sierra Nevada Mountains near Carson City, NV.  They have turned their interest in travel, history and the natural world into creating art.

 After taking a workshop by Kerik Kouklis, Les began experimenting with this combination print process.  Platinum printing date back to 1873, while Gum printing date back to 1855.

Sixty-five years after closing, the Djupavik Herring Factory silently stands as a monument of man's ingenuity under the harsh Icelandic weather.
