Hello and thank you for visiting my website! I was born in Iowa and am from a large family of creatives—my father Thomas Francis Chouteau was a Professor of Art & Art History at St. Ambrose University where I received a B.A. in Art. I received my M.A. and M.F.A. in printmaking and art history from The University of Iowa and am a Professor of Art at Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio. I have had the privilege of teaching many talented and wonderful people over the years. I am a citizen of the Shawnee Tribe who lives on ancestral lands in south-central Ohio.
The majority of the art I make is in printmaking media. I love the luminous effects that thin layers of ink on paper can achieve and the experimentation inherent in the processes. My work considers sustainability, peace and justice issues through depictions of animals, places and people.
