Artist Bios

Esther Cho is an interdisciplinary artist and papermaker. Her research-based studio practice focuses on devising narrative installations for archiving the history and retelling the stories of Asian Americans, children of immigrants, and Asian diasporas to consider the experience of identity, gender, loss of lineage, and cultural disconnect. In 2017, she received the Windgate-Lamar Fellowship to travel to South Korea and study the process of traditional Korean papermaking and its related craft forms. She currently attends the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she is pursuing her second Master of Fine Arts degree in Design Studies with a focus on papermaking and material culture.

Heather Kohlmeier is an interdisciplinary artist and papermaker. Process and material are central to her making practice and inspire her creation of both functional and sculptural forms. These forms are often a study of translucency, as well as the relationship between strength and fragility found within the natural world. Kohlmeier is currently perusing an MFA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, with a focus in papermaking. Her forthcoming article on the history and contemporary use of indigo by papermakers will appear in the summer 2023 edition of Hand Papermaking Magazine. She will be teaching an indigo for papermaking and fiber arts workshop in the summer of 2023, at the Minnesota Center for the Book.

Veronica Pham is an interdisciplinary artist and papermaker. She is currently an M.F.A candidate in Design Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her work focuses on fiber and papermaking to tell generationally lost stories around the ideas of process, culture, identity, and place. Pham continues to conduct fieldwork in Vietnam on traditional and contemporary papermaking practices with a focus on collaborative research. Pham holds a B.F.A in Painting from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and lives in the Mid-Western region of the United States where she enjoys incorporating local hemp in her papermaking practice.
