Coralette Damme is an avid nature lover which informs much of her artwork.
She is inspired also by family traditions and cultural legends. Coralette is adept
at a range of creative media including printmaking for which she is best known.
She has an equally strong love of painting, ceramics, and stained glass. Her
work has a recognizable style of bold contrasts mixed with expressive marks and
mystical symbols. She earned a BFA from the University of Nebraska and her
work is held in collections across the US and in Europe. She has enjoyed
opportunities to work with many local arts organizations to create temporary
immersive installations as well as permanent public artworks.
"I make art to express that which is felt but unseen and to engage with our roots,
our connection to nature, mystery, and the unknown. It is easy to forget that we
are creative from birth and stifle the impulse to play. I hope with my art to stir
some of those hidden inclinations back to life." -- Coralette Damme
"Making magical art by blending printmaking with curiosity."
