This printmaking collective started at the University of Regina’s Fine Arts program, when four print-making students decided to continue working together after the conclusion of their undergrad studies. Michelle Brownridge, Amber Dalton, Karli Jessup and Caitlin Mullan are the nucleus of the Articulate Ink collective. Their mission as a print collective is to provide the public, local artists and recent graduates with an accessible, environmentally conscious printmaking studio fostering a contemporary, active print culture in Regina. By providing educational programs, community access and collaborative editioning opportunities, Articulate Ink exists to encourage and support the appreciation of printmaking arts and hand-made products.

Geanna is a Cree/German mixed media artist from Regina, Saskatchewan. She is an artist entrepreneur who started out at a young age painting and drawing and selling her art and hemp jewellery out of her locker in school. She works in mixed media collage, sculpture, acrylic, street art, chalkboard and window painting. She often sets herself year-long personal challenges to push her in new directions, and to help her to keep a light footprint on the world. These projects have led to a fascination with saving found objects to up-cycle, and with up-cycling as an art form in general. Geanna’s “Trash Talk” workshops engage school-age students and adults alike and were developed through her involvement in the Liquid Art Project, a partnership between the Creative City Centre and the Regina Improvisation Studies Centre.
From co owning a store that specialized in wedding veils and other head ware, to running non-profit art markets, to encouraging interdisciplinary community collaboration, Geanna is diverse, and often making art out of someone else’s trash, and encouraging you to do it, too.
Born in Brandon Manitoba, Brendan Schick has lived in Regina since 1984. Much of his childhood was spent close to nature, and living in Saskatchewan has engendered Brendan with a keen sense of observation in the subtleties that characterize life on the prairies. His work focuses on patterns in nature, and the exploration of identity through illusionistic self-portraits.
