A printmaker for over twenty years, Hester Stinnett is a
Professor of Printmaking at the Tyler School of Art, Temple
University. She often incorporates hand-written notes by
her mother, who suffers from dementia, into her work as an exploration of the effects of chance upon the determination of human intent. Her work is included in numerous private and public collections including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, the Walker Art Center MN, Maguire Tomas Partners, GlaxoSmithKline, and ARCO Chemical Company. Dividing her time between teaching and studio work, Ms. Stinnett continues to combine printmaking techniques such as woodblock, silkscreen, and suminagashi, a traditional Japanese technique.
Stinnett has exhibited at the Museum of American Art of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia; and Delaware Art Museum, Wilmington, DE. She was a 2003 Artist in Residence at the Fabric Workshop and the recipient of a 2004 Pennsylvania Council Artist Fellowship for Works on Paper.
