Juror: Catherine Nash

A long-time resident of Tucson, Arizona, Catherine Nash is an artist who freely mixes media in her work to express her ideas.  After receiving a B.F.A. in Printmaking and Drawing from the University of New Hampshire in 1980, Nash spent a year and a half creating prints and drawings in Paris.  In 1987, she graduated from the University of Arizona with a Master of Fine Arts in Mixed Media.


Specializing in Japanese and Western hand papermaking, encaustic painting and mixed media drawing, Nash is a teaching artist who balances her studio work with artist-in-resident teaching, lectures, and workshops across the United States, as well as in professional studios and universities in eight European countries, Australia and Japan.  

“Creating images and objects of beauty and visual poetry that express reverence offers me grounding.  Enough time has passed by in my creative life to notice that I spiral through ideas and concerns.  I discover tiny roots of an idea were hidden in previous works but have emerged in a different way.  Completely understanding a narrative while creating is not important. I’ve learned to not question the internal juxtaposition of imagery, to listen, and let the work lead me.  A conversation with paper, wax, branches, brush, pen, saw, and twine.”
