Dorothy Simpson Krause incorporates painting, collage and printmaking into her digital mixed media art. In July 1997, she co-organized “Digital Atelier: A printmaking studio for the 21st century” at the Smithsonian American Art Museum for which she received a Smithsonian/ Computerworld Technology in the Arts Award. That same year, she worked with a group of curators to help them envision the potential of digital printmaking in “Media for a New Millennium” organized by the Vinalhaven Graphic Arts Foundation.

In 2001 she demonstrated digital printmaking techniques at the opening of the Brooklyn Museum of Art 27th Print National, Digital: Printmaking Now, in 2004 she was a Visiting Artist at the American Academy in Rome, in 2007 she was Von Hess Visiting Artist at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia and in 2012 she is the first Helen M. Salzberg Artist in Residence at Jaffe Center for Book Arts at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton.

Krause is Professor Emeritus at Massachusetts College of Art, author of Book + Art: Handcrafting Artists’ Books, (North Light, 2009), and co-author, with Lhotka and Schminke, of Digital Art Studio: Techniques for combining inkjet printing with traditional art materials, (Watson-Guptil, 2004).
