ABOUT

I am Abby Fox, a printmaker, educator, explorer, and Colorado native.  I hold a BFA in printmaking and BA in Spanish from Colorado State University, and more recently completed graduate studies at Western State Colorado University to graduate with a Master of Arts in Education. 

 

After graduating from CSU, I taught art, ate tamales, and climbed volcanoes in Latin America for 18 months, before landing in Telluride, CO.  Over the past nine years in Telluride, I taught Art and Spanish to a variety of ages, most recently teaching  Kindergarten-4th Grade Art and Kindergarten-6th Grade Spanish at Telluride Mountain School. 

I rejoined the world of printmaking in 2016, after being asked to participate in several print exchanges.  Since then, I have created several bodies of work, exploring borders around the world and their effects on wildlife and human interactions.  As with all of my art, I hope to inspire civil discourse and help my viewers reflect on the challenges and responsibilities of life in the modern world.

I also prioritizes backpacking and time in the great outdoors.  I completed a solo thru-hike of the 500-mile Colorado trail in 2016, and a solo thru-hike of the Tahoe Rim Trail in 2018.  I am currently exploring the world, by foot, in hopes of translating my experiences into artwork that is accessible to a wide range of viewers.
