Annie Bissett (Northampton, MA) began her art career as a freelance digital illustrator, working with clients such as National Geographic Society, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post and a wide range of magazines. In 2005, she studied briefly with woodblock artist Matt Brown and soon afterward began pursuing printmaking full time. Her woodblock prints have been exhibited throughout the United States, as well as Canada, Japan and the United Kingdom. Bissett’s work has received critical attention in Printmaking Today, The Stranger and the Washington Post, and her work is featured in April Vollmer’s recent book Japanese Woodblock Print Workshop. She is on the teaching staff at Zea Mays Printmaking, Florence, MA, and also travels to other locations to conduct workshops.
