The Relief Prints of Kathleen Neeley

Kathleen Neeley’s linocut prints are infused with varying cultures across time, yet feel wholly contemporary in reflection. The artist looks at our relationship to the Earth, femininity, and other personal subjects while maintaining the elements and motifs of myths.

“I draw stylistic and conceptual influence from nature, contemporary fiction, Medieval and ancient art, pre-Colonial American art, myths, ukiyo-e, and the decorative arts, particularly those of early twentieth century America,” she says. The artist’s commissioned clients include Phish, Calexico and Iron & Wine, Streetlight Manifesto, and others. The artist’s practice also encompasses digital illustration and pen and ink.

The artist is currently based in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Find more of Neeley’s work here.
