about

My name is Kristen Greteman.

I began to explore printmaking in 2015. Under the topic of subdivisions, I focused on learning the technique, combining color, and arranging composition on the page. I exhibited this work at the Des Moines Arts Festival as an emerging artist in 2016, winning Iowa Emerging Artist Best of Show.

Over the past few years, my photography and printmaking have evolved, visually, while maintaining similar subject matter. In 2016, I exhibited three times in two solo exhibitions and one group exhibition, winning Best of Show at the Des Moines Arts Festival for the Iowa Emerging Artists. And in 2017, I exhibited at the Des Moines Arts Festival as a professional artist, displaying my newest series, Iowa: A Place.
