FOUNDER, BLACK POINT EDITIONS
Printmaking: digital printmaking for artists world-wide specifically with Piezography. Black Point Editions was pivotal in transitioning many of the top artists in the Chicago region from traditional photographic workflows to mixed digital/analogue or entirely digital all with the finest-quality print being the end-goal. Two pillars of the Chicago art community sprang out of Black Point Editions: Latitude Chicago (a non-profit digital lab) and Document (a production studio and gallery).
