Hello Biltrix friends and followers!
Today we are thrilled to introduce you to our newest co-blogger — artist, designer, and high school art teacher, Alison Batley.
Alison just finished her M.F.A. in Printmaking at SCAD-Atlanta. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from N.C. State College of Design with a B.A. in Design, received her visual arts teaching certification from Meredith College, and studied two years of Theology at Aquinas College, in Nashville, TN. She is now serving as the Co-Chair for the global Bioethics Art Competition in conjunction with the UNESCO Chair in Bioethics and Human Rights.
Her work explores many aspects of what it means to be a human being, utilizing a variety of printmaking techniques and other two and three-dimensional mediums. Through visual metaphors, her work investigates the relationship and interconnectedness surrounding the human experience of love and life in our contemporary age.
Last week Biltrix featured Alison’s Tree of Life intaglio print. We are now privileged and looking forward to more of her work and reflection, inspired by the Holy Father’s call to make new works of art that teach authentic Catholic doctrine.
Thank you Alison and welcome to Biltrix!
