Elke Claus


My career began at Rutgers University in New Jersey, where I worked in a professional print studio, The Rutgers Center for Innovative Printmaking. There I collaborated with New York City artists in the creation of lithography editions. At the same time, I was an intern at the infamous Franklin Furnace, an avant-garde art space in Tribeca. During those years it housed the country’s largest collection of artist’s books, which I helped organize. These two formative influences have left me with a deep love for technical craftsmanship and the daring of non-conventional, contemporary artworks. After moving to Chicago, I became a teaching assistant at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. I have taught printmaking at Lill Street Art Center and The Hyde Park Art Center .
