M.F.A Printmaking

Bio/Research Statement: I graduated from Bowling Green State University in 2014 with a BFA in Printmaking. The later years of my undergraduate is when I was introduced to the mezzotint process. Once I started, I became hooked and continued to work with the medium in my spare time in the four year break between undergrad and graduate school. My current work has been an exploration of using automatic drawing techniques and liquid medias and reacting to them with a more careful relief process. These more reactive making process has been a way to retool my slower creative processes from undergraduate. Going forward I plan to implement hand made folding papers to bring dimensionality and possibly movement to my prints.
