Artist Highlight: Kristen Bukowski

Kristen Bukowskiis a phenomenal artist currently based out of Steamboat Springs, where she works at a print-shop called Oehme Graphics.  Originally from Iowa, Kristen attended Colorado College where she studied printmaking and fiber arts. Kristen’s work transitions fluidly between media; her weaving flows into her printmaking and her prints weave into her fiber work. She describes the loom and printing press as “an extension of my own body, removing my hand from the artwork in a way that allows for a number of surprises.”

I love Kristen’s attention to subtle shifts in color, particularly with her use of dip dyeing and shibori. I also love her Anni Albers inspired wood-cuts and photo-polymer etchings.

Be sure to check out both her prints and fiber work on her website here.
