In the three years that she lived in Colorado Springs, printmaker Ele Annand didn’t show her work much, but always made an impression when she did. We’re sad, for us, that she’s leaving, but happy for her that she’ll be moving to North Carolina to study at the renowned Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina. Of course, we couldn’t let her leave without asking her to share some of her seldom-seen work and her thoughts about the Colorado Springs arts community.

(Please leave us some feedback below in the comments or via email at thebigsomething@krcc.org. Thanks!)

    The prints are so lovely–and I don’t find the sad animals at all cute! They seem to me profoundly solemn, very beautiful. Wish I knew where I could buy them. Good luck in NC and thanks for sharing, Noel.

  2. Beautiful prints, thanks for sharing with us. I dream of going to Penland, I hope your time there is productive and inspiring. I hope we get to see what you produce while you are there.

In between worrying about driving across country and preparing myself for Penland I have gotten a few last hikes in and managed to have a major exploding tzatziki  accident. Oh right and a few weeks ago The Big Something featured a slideshow of my prints check it out. [...]
