Christa Carleton

Profile Location
Missoula , MT

Christa Carleton received her BFA from Western Colorado University and MFA in Printmaking from Montana State University. Christa works regularly in screenprint and woodcut, but letterpress is where her loyalties lie. She is currently a screenprint technician at a textile printing business and pursues her artistic practice on top of her full time job. While being a printmaker is a huge part of her identity it isn't her only love. Christa enjoys cooking vegetarian food, gardening, hiking with her dog, and listening to podcasts.

Artist Statement

My artwork communicates messages of unrest, anxiety, and frustration as a woman. I relay these themes by using my unshakeable urge to be vulnerable. Through this urge I source my private memories, experiences, mantras, unspoken thoughts, and weak moments to bring fellowship and rapport with my viewer. I am driven to create work that focuses thematically on the agency of women because we live in a world where a woman’s voice and experience is still unfairly marginalized, mocked, and treated unequally.
