Claire Owen (Philadelphia, PA): After earning a graduate degree in printmaking from Rochester Institute of Technology, Claire moved to Philadelphia and established Turtle Island Press for the production of limited edition visual artist books. These editions are represented by library and museum collections throughout the country, including the Library of Congress, The National Gallery, Princeton University, Yale University, Harvard University, and The Victoria and Albert Museum. Although her academic training was in the Fine Arts, she has pursued a professional career in studio art, and has been writing short stories and poems for most of her adult life. All of her work has been in the development of strong narrative, and a love of language. Claire began studying poetry with the late AV Christie almost ten years ago, and for the last year has continued working with a group of poets “The Tenth Sky Poets,” who were also her students. In May, she received a Merit Award from the Atlanta Review in the International Poetry Competition. Website: www.cotip.net.
