Tina Garrick Albro


I love the unexpected outcomes that handpulled printmaking offers. All of my prints are slightly different, and the quirks and irregularities that are inherent in this art form are endlessly interesting to me. My artwork is made using a variety of traditional printmaking techniques. Each is unique and one of a kind. They are not digital or giclee (inkjet) reproductions. For each piece, the colors are carefully mixed then brushed or rolled by hand onto the plate. After inking, archival cotton rag paper is laid on top and hand printed or rolled through an etching press. This process is repeated many times to produce each piece.



Artist Statement

I have lived most of my life in South Seattle above the shores of Lake Washington. Most of my memories and stories are centered here, and my artwork conveys them as they diffuse and percolate. Layered images, color and color relationships are of interest to me. Ideas surface most often in a series exploring an idea.


Tina Garrick Albro was born and raised in South Seattle and  grew up riding the city bus, attending school and dreaming about art and design.

She has worked in banking, US-European policy, and owned several businesses. After realizing making art is a real job, she has worked in monotype, collograph, encaustic and oil painting and elementary art education.
