Abbey Blake creates work through the lens of a maker but also an explorer. There is an invaluable connection between her time in the studio and time spent observing the natural world. There is typically an aspect of cherishing phenomenon, but also an appreciation of the ecosystem and the less observable species that make a bionetwork what it is. Blake received her BFA in Printmaking from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 2014 and is currently an MFA candidate in Printmaking at The University of Iowa.
