“I am a painter by training and collage-maker by nature who began my experimental printmaking with reprographic machines. Since being introduced to computers in the late 1960’s when working on my doctorate at Penn State, I have combined traditional and digital media. My work includes large-scale mixed media pieces, artist books and book-like objects that bridge between these two forms. It combines the humblest of materials – plaster, tar, wax and pigment – with the latest in technology to evoke the past and herald the future. It is an integrated mode of inquiry that links concept and media in an ongoing dialogue – a visible means of exploring meaning.”

Dorothy Simpson Krause is Professor Emeritus at Massachusetts College of Art where she founded the Computer Arts Center.
