Anna Hasseltine is a Boston-born artist who graduated from Pratt Institute with a BFA in Printmaking in 2015. She is currently creating fauna and flora prints at Hoofprint Workshop in Chicago. She works primarily through the art of printmaking, utilizing the unique quality of woodcut, linocut, and silkscreen techniques.
Her prints draw inspiration from literary works such as Shakespearian tragedies to Aesop’s Fables. Anna has a particular interest in innate animal behavior and how animal instinct manifests itself in our human conduct and interactions. The animals in her work become metaphors for our daily life on a personal, national, and global level. Power struggles, aggression, predator-prey relationships, and the battle for survival are common themes and concepts explored in her work.
