About

Mark Ritchie is an artist working between printmaking and drawing. He moves between large-scale works that are exhibited in the spirit of Asian folding screens and small-scale works that reference Near Eastern miniature traditions. His work uses a non-western manipulation of space and a variety of materials and methods to create subtle layering of ink, graphite and pigment on paper.

After receiving the B.F.A. degree from the University of Kansas, Ritchie spent a year in Cardiff, Wales at South Glamorgan Institute of Higher Education and in Aberdeen, Scotland at Peacock Printmakers and was awarded the M.F.A. degree in Printmaking from Indiana University. He has worked as an Artist-in-Residence in schools and a prison in Georgia and taught at universities in Georgia and Texas. He currently holds the rank of Professor in the University of Wyoming Art and Art History Program. He exhibits nationally and internationally, but prefers the quiet, windy solitude of Wyoming as a place to live and work with artist-wife, Leah Hardy and son, Ky.
