Biography CV

Artist for BiographyElizabeth Busey likes to exploit the deliberate nature of printmaking and collage as a way to meditate on parts of the world that fascinate her. Daily encounters with towering billows of clouds as well as expansive topographies and microscopic illuminations are translated into detailed, rhythmic monoprint collages, and large, colorful reduction linocuts.

Busey’s artwork is included in public, corporate, hospital and private collections in the United States, Europe and Australia. Her work has been featured in juried printmaking shows such as the Los Angeles Printmaking Society’s National Print Exhibition and the Boston Printmaker’s North American Biennial. Her monoprint collage, Nevertheless She Was Sanguine, was awarded First Place in the Indiana Artists juried show at Newfields/Indianapolis Museum of Art.

Busey was born in Syracuse, New York in 1967 to parents who loved to hike and travel. She continued this interest as she lived on both coasts, and now resides among the rugged hills and valleys of Bloomington, Indiana.
