Collection: True North Guest Gallery

Welcome to our rotating gallery space for guest artists from the community.

April's artist is Tricia Soderberg. Welcome, Tricia!

Tricia Soderberg draws inspiration from the wonder of botanical gardens, channeling their vibrant energy into stunning works of art. As she strolls past blossoming flowers and verdant leaves, Tricia feels a profound sense of renewal. This passion shines through in her mesmerizing monotype prints. She employs a layered mixed media technique to cultivate an illusion of depth and movement. Tricia embraces the randomness of the creative process, inking and pressing real and artificial plants and hand-cut stencils onto plexiglass plates to be printed on archival paper. She often incorporates collaged elements, enhancing each print’s unique personality. These imaginative interpretations invigorate the senses, transporting viewers into an oasis of light and life. Her work breathes new vitality into fragments of the natural world we so often take for granted.

Tricia Soderberg was born in Detroit, Michigan and earned her BFA in painting from Wayne State University. She later took classes in illustration at the Center for Creative Studies also in Detroit. She became interested in printmaking in 2011 after taking a class at The Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center. Tricia earned a certificate in Interactive Marketing from Walsh College in 2000. She worked as a graphic designer and event coordinator for Aon Corporation in Southfield, Michigan for twenty-seven years. After retiring from corporate life in 2021, Tricia moved with her husband to Colorado Springs. She is a member of the Manitou Art Center where she takes advantage of their printing press to begin her work. The monotypes are further developed in her home studio in Colorado Springs.
