Tin began printmaking in earnest in 2012, creating their first multi-block print through an Art New England intensive. With a background in illustration and woodworking, woodblock printmaking seemed a natural realization once they got their hands on the tools. Tin has since sought out opportunities to allow for more exploration of the medium, with various workshops and intensives.
Tin’s work is primarily wildlife based. The resilience of the natural world and the creatures within it are an inspiration, giving Tin strength and guidance through their life. Tin works to capture energy and motion within their images, continuing to explore how best to portray movement with a combination of mark making and layering.
Tin is currently developing their printmaking techniques using a combination of monotype, drypoint etching and relief printing through IS Projects Studio in Fort Lauderdale. Tin has also been dabbling in the world of tattoos for the last few years. Tin has a BFA in Illustration from Massachusetts College of Art and lives with their partner, son and a whole bunch of critters.
