Katherine Baca-Bielinis is a fine art printmaker living and working in Rochester, New York. A native of San Francisco, she received her B.A. in Art, with an emphasis in printmaking from California State University, Long Beach and her M.S. in Art Education from the Rochester Institute of Technology. A public school Art teacher for 22 years, she has since retired and is pursuing her artistic career.
Although versed in a wide variety of media, her interest in printmaking has been reignited with the study of contemporary non-toxic printmaking methods. The flame is further fueled by her participation in the Print Club of Rochester and its talented members. Joining in 2012, she has served on the Board of Directors since 2013 and accepted the position of President in 2019..
Her current work focuses on the exploration of non-toxic technologies, in particular newer methods of silkscreen, lithography and etching.
While her imagery conveys her interest in the beauty found within the urban and architectural environment, her prints also attempt to find the ideal synergy of her methods of choice.
