Carol Zeches

Born in 1954, I was the youngest of  3 girls. I grew up in Oak Park, Illinois, a  suburb of Chicago. I attended liberal arts colleges (yes, plural) in Minnesota and Wisconsin. I graduated in 1978 with an art education degree. After living in Michigan for 8 years I moved to California with my family in 1992. I am a mother of four and grandma to seven. I’ve been an art educator for 15 years.

Artist Statement

My love affair with printmaking began in high school. It’s the textures that captivate me; draw me in. I love to touch the grooves made by the gouges. The connection between  image and block bridges meaning. I am always curious about what the positive and negative of an image will reveal.  Printmaking simply opens the way to adventure for me.
