Stephanie Carpenter is a letterpress printer, book artist, and graphic designer. She is the Assistant Director at the Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum in Two Rivers, Wisconsin. At the museum she teaches workshops, gives tours, and helps catalog one of the world’s largest collections of wood type. Her evenings are spent creating personal art in the form of posters, installations, and artists' books.
Stephanie enjoys the tactile nature of letterpress printing, creating her work using wood and metal type, hand-carved blocks, and found imagery. The physical process of planning the work, setting the type, and printing the piece is just as important as the finished print.
She received a BA in Communication Arts and Graphic Design from the University of Saint Francis in Fort Wayne, IN, and an MFA in Graphic Design from Indiana University, Bloomington. Stephanie currently teaches graphic design courses at Silver Lake College in Manitowoc, Wisconsin.
