Joel Elgin

Every print of Joel Elgin's begins with a story. His Irish roots provide rich inspiration for his vivid intaglios of symbolic creatures and objects. Joel's interest in Celtic mythology has led him to Ireland several times to explore the physical sites tied to certain legends. He writes, "The production of the print furthers my process of learning specific information and yet at the same time opens, more fully, the vein that connects me to my Irish heritage." Joel, a Des Moines native, studied at Simpson College and Grandview College before attending the University of Iowa and receiving his B.F.A., M.A. and M.F.A. in Printmaking. He taught at Dartmouth College for five years and has served as a lecturer and visiting artist at Yale University and Swarthmore College. His prints are in the collections of Trinity College in Dublin, Harvard University Art Museums and the Milwaukee Museum of Art, among others. Joel is currently Professor of Printmaking at University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse.
