It's a simple story.
My mother tongue in art + design is color.
Always color-centric, my commitment, and love of the natural world is what I desire to express in my work.
Awarded a scholarship to St Martins School of Art (aka Central St Martins), in London, PD Packard obtained a combined BFA degree in Textile Design and Fashion. When she returned to the states she developed original textiles and surface designs primarily for the cosmetic industry. Many of the principles in printmaking are similar to fabric and surface design making an easy and natural transition for her into fine art printing in 2009.
