Ginnie Madsen

I grew up in Chicago, received a BFA from the University of Chicago and moved to the West in the 70’s.  I raised a family in Laramie, have a MFA from the University of Wyoming and had the opportunity to teach drawing, sculpture and print making classes at UW for about 10 years.  It was in teaching print making that I became interested in that process which is now my primary art medium.

Most of my imagery starts with first hand observations of the world around me. The relief prints I make are created by carving into a linoleum plate to create shapes and texture areas and results in a simplified or abstracted image.  Each color is created by carving and printing additional layers. I use a printing process that results in a limited, hand printed edition, usually between 8 and 12 prints.
