A storyteller through my prints, watercolors and hand-bound books I have become driven to express the principles of unconditional love - not conditional romance.
In abstract concepts, my work illustrates what I believe is important about unconditional love that creates this place I call “nest”, a refuge that can be found no matter where you are physically or mentally.
Awarded a scholarship from St Martins School of Art (aka Central St Martins), in London, PD Packard obtained a combined 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. The media used in her prints is drypoint, collagraph, embossing and oil paint on kozo paper.
Packard teaches workshops on Japanese Decorative Paper Making and Chinese Brush Painting to elementary school children in the Boerum Hill neighborhood in Brooklyn.
