Artist and designer Woodie Anderson employs printmaking, drawing, sculpture and written language to explore the areas where identity, personal history and society intersect. While studying fine art and graphic design at Appalachian State University (ASU), she began experimenting with the tensions between fine art and commercial applications of visual language–areas she continues to explore in much of her work through the use of text, info-graphics and other collected graphic materials.
Anderson believes art-making facilitates thinking, enhancing our experience of the world around us. A teacher at Sawtooth since 2013, she enjoys demystifying printmaking and helping students tap into their creative hearts.
Anderson’s work is featured in The Art-o-mat® “Unpacked” Book and in “Art Quilts at Play” by Jane Davila and Elin Waterston. She is a member of Artworks Gallery and has exhibited at regional and national venues including the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, SECCA and The Turchin Center for the Visual Arts at ASU.
