Carve Between the Lines is a relief printmaking workshop run by Natalie Ricciardi, 2017 alumna of the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design with a BFA in Printmaking. Her studio, curated gallery, and headquarters is at The Dungeon, a non profit creative space in the Walker's Point neighborhood of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Currently The Dungeon’s classroom and studio space is being refurbished through the winter and spring months.
It is our long term goal at The Dungeon to:
Build a community of relief print-makers to share knowledge and advice about the medium,
Provide support for print-makers, encourage collaboration and a free-flow of information,
Provide practical means like a space to work in, supplies and equipment, and gallery space to display work for sale for local artists and makers.
In my personal art practice...

Carving is my catharsis. Born, raised, currently living and working in Milwaukee I yearn for the northern forest where the silence stretches far out into the night. 1,000,001 things inspire me to create but time immersed in Nature, old monsters and myths, the divine feminine, and Slayer are my muses.
As a modern print-maker, I strive to be conscientious with my materials and use modern knowledge and technology to be as resourceful and efficient as possible. There is something magical about teaching- it helps me keep a Beginners Mind.
