Laurie Szujewska

Laurie Szujewska
printmaker, typographer, graphic designer

Laurie Szujewska is a printmaker who works with shapes and color. The shape may be as familiar as a letterform where the question is how do we look anew at things so familiar to us that they are almost invisible? Or the shape may be abstract, suggesting something familiar yet unnameable. The element of color is added thru a process of printing which is open and fluid, allowing for chance and surprise.

She currently teaches in the design school at University of California, Davis. She was an Art Director at Adobe Systems, and later had her own design studio specializing in typography. She currently operates Ensatina Press, a letterpress studio dedicated to printmaking.
