Ms. Bouvier has studied with a diverse mix of artists and thinkers; Professor Gottfried Jaeger, David Graham, Hedi Kyle, Thomas Carabasi, and Dr. Janet A. Kaplan. Ms. Bouvier earned an AST in photography from Antonelli Institute, a BFA in photography from Moore College of Art and Design and an MFA in Book Arts and Printmaking from the University of the Arts. She is also a Fulbright Fellowship recipient to Germany.
PD Packard’s mother tongue with art and design is color. As contained narrative, her work is created to express the principles of unconditional love, not conditional romance. She is drawn to the order of self-similar patterns that have an underlying mathematical structure that can appear indefinitely complex. With the casual study of entomology, attracted to the insects’ structured patterns and colors, intrigued to know more about their world that parallels our own. The work is centered on the discovery of cause and effect through the printmaking techniques of drypoint, embossing, and relief mixed with watercolor painting, and aniline dyes.
