Where The River Flows, Melinda Whipplesmith Plank

ABOUT THE ARTIST: MELINDA WHIPPLESMITH PLANK

Whipplesmith Plank’s work is informed by her cattle ranching heritage, celebrating biodiversity and the preservation of open spaces. To create her woodblock prints, she combines color and shape with the energy and texture of spontaneous line.

“When I discovered printmaking 20 years ago, I was elated. Finally, a medium that took my meticulous drawings and
transformed them into something earthier and more evocative than I had the wisdom to do myself.”

She is a member of CA. Printmakers Assoc., Society of Animal Artists, an artist in Residence at Glacier and Lassen Volcanic
National Parks. Her work is part of the Permanent Collections at Maryhill Museum, WA. and Leigh Yawkey Museum, WI.

I Have a Secret, Melinda Whipplesmith Plank
