Leftovers Artist in Residence
Meet Wingtip Press LEFTOVERS VIII Student Artist in Residence, Ameerah Bader.
Ameerah will be joining us this summer and we’re thrilled she will be spending time with us. According to Ameerah, “There is a boldness that pours out of a woodcut that stands apart from any other art medium. So what I hope to gain from this residency is the chance to create an artist’s book with an illustrative style telling a story of simple moment in time.” We will share more of Ameerah’s time with us throughout the summer.
