Anna Marie Pavlik
Pavlik grew up in Minnesota where she attended college at the University of Minnesota Duluth receiving a Bachelors degree in Studio Art. She continued her education, eventually receiving another degree in Mechanical engineering. The analytical approach used in her engineering career reflects in her thought-provoking art.
Pavlik uses the process of intaglio to print her works as well as stratographs. Intaglio prints use acid to etch lines into a metal plate, the plate is wiped with ink and printed on a large press. Stratographs are done with a matrix of cardboard and secondary materials. The print is often added as a second print from the first. She incorporated natural materials such as leaves into her stratographs creating a style uniquely hers.
Anna Marie uses her copper etchings to visually describe the precarious relationship between people and the environment.
