Elizabeth Dove is a printmaker and photographer currently residing in Missoula, Montana, where she teaches in the School of Art at the University of Montana. Her work continues to be based in traditional printmaking practices (concerns with repetition, imprinting, and the matrix) but has expanded in media to include earthworks, site specific sculpture and installation. Elizabeth’s themes include investigating the passage of time, subjective scientific methods, and how one’s body can register and can communicate history and memories.
Elizabeth has conducted extensive research into non–toxic printmaking processes, taught dozens of workshops at colleges and universities, received funding to study the integration of digital technology and traditional printmaking practices, and has published her research in the books “The Contemporary Printmaker” and “Non–toxic Intaglio Printmaking”, and the British journal “Printmaking Today”. Elizabeth received her BFA from the Maryland Institute, College of Art in Baltimore, and her MFA from Vermont College.
