Handmade Flax Paper

Marie Sturken is a printmaker and papermaker.  Her handmade paper works are created at Dieu Donne Papermill in New York City. She has taught papermaking workshops for the Newark Museum, the Printmaking Council of New Jersey, Perkins Center for the Arts, and the Princeton University Art Museum. A founding member of the Princeton Artists Alliance, she has received awards and purchase prizes from William Paterson University's American Impressions Juried Printmaking Exhibit in 2004, Hunterdon Museum of Art's Juried National Print Exhibit in 2003, and The College of New Jersey's National Juried Print Exhibit in 2002.

Of her work she states, “Many images in my work are recycled, and have evolved over time, documenting its fugitive nature. Tearing things, distressing them, and sending them through a series of processes gives them new life and meaning. With the transformation of the raw fibers through beating, and the layering of various materials, the image, content or subject, can be an expression of the material itself.”

Marie Sturken has exhibited extensively in solo, group, and juried exhibitions.  She has exhibited in the PAA Homer's Odyssey shows at the Newark Museum in 2002 and at The College of New Jersey in 2003.  Her works are included in many public and corporate collections including Museum of Modern Art Library in NYC, Newark Library Print Collection in Newark, NJ, New Jersey State Museum in Trenton, Bristol-Myers Squibb in Lawrenceville, and Columbia-Presbyterian Hospital in NYC.
