Printmaker and artist Rachel Ann Dennis started out as a Women’s, Gender and Sexuality major and transformed herself into Master Print, Book and Paper artist. Dennis's advice: “Don’t wait for the next thing or right time to make art, use your creativity now to figure out the next thing, make the space in your life”.

Her jovial personality will make you feel at home in her studio, as she explains her craft. She talks about her tools and presses as if they are family and friends, her presses have names. "This is a tradition of the trade," says Dennis.

When asked what her favorite piece she has created she says her studio and she thinks of it as an installation piece. Called "OK LOVELY," her studio serves as a working artist studio that also hosts workshops in letterpress printing, book binding and paper making for the community.
