Tina Garrick Albro





Artist Statement

Tina Garrick Albro is a printmaker and mixed media artist, creating one of a kind and variable edition works.

She explores our connections in the present with the past using original and historical imagery, ink and vintage papers.

 Her hope is that the viewer is offered a glimpse
of a world that is not only personal but strikes a universal chord of beauty, joy and connectedness. 


Tina Garrick Albro grew up in the Pacific Northwest surrounded by  fresh and salt waters, majestic mountains, and old-growth forests. She received her BA in International Studies from the University of Washington while mostly studying art and design in the stacks of Suzzalo Library. She presently divides her time between her studios in Seattle and Walla Walla, working as a multidisciplinary artist incorporating painting, printmaking, encaustic, and photography.

Born and raised in South Seattle she 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 was a viable vocation, she has worked in monotype, collograph, encaustic and oil painting and elementary art education.

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.
