Statement

Printmaker + Watercolorist + Book Artist

My mother tongue with art and design is color. As contained narrative, my work is created to express the principles of unconditional love, not conditional romance.

I am drawn to the order of self-similar patterns that have an underlying mathematical structure that can appear indefinitely complex. With the casual study of entomology, I am attracted to the insects’ structured patterns and colors, intrigued to know more about their world that parallels our own.

My work is centered on the discovery of cause and effect through the printmaking techniques of drypoint, embossing, and relief mixed with watercolor painting, and aniline dyes.

Awarded a scholarship to St Martins School of Art (aka Central St Martins), in London, PD Packard obtained a combined BFA degree in Textile Design and Fashion. When she returned to the states she developed original textiles and surface designs primarily for the cosmetic industry. Many of the principles in printmaking are similar to fabric and surface design making an easy and natural transition for her into fine art printing in 2009.

PD Packard’s work has been exhibited throughout the States and Internationally; Tate Britain Museum, National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Newport Museum of Fine Art, RI, 110 Church Gallery, Philadelphia, Crain Arts Building, Philadelphia, Minnesota Center for Book Arts, MN, Blackburn 20/20, NYC, A.I.R.
