Nancy Diessner’s artwork emerges from her background in painting, printmaking, drawing, photography, and digital image manipulation. Incorporating all these media, her artwork explores the mysterious and complex connection between humans and animals, at the same time expressing our human longing for and isolation from the “other.” Dedicated to safer printmaking, she created two low-toxicity college printmaking studios during her college teaching career, and now runs a public printmaking studio, Dog’s Eye Print Studio, in Framingham, MA, where she also makes photopolymer etching plates for artists.
