Coralette Damme earned her BFA from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and
currently resides in Saint Petersburg, FL. She is primarily known for her block
printing, but will employ all variety of media if a piece of artwork requires it.
This results in most of her hand printed images being one of a kind singular
works, and brings a more contemporary approach to traditional methods of
printmaking. Coralette finds inspiration in holiday celebrations, the natural
world, folk legends, and symbols.
"I make art to express that which is felt but unseen and to engage myself and
the viewer with things we may have forgotten: our roots, our connection to
nature, curiosity, intuition, and the unknown. It is easy to forget that we are
creative from birth and stifle the impulse to play. I hope with my art to stir
some of these hidden inclinations back to life." -- Coralette Damme
