Winter Ross is an environmental activist, street medic and shamanic practitioner. These interests inform both her art and her writing. She studied painting at Hartford Art School and received a BFA in Communications Design and Illustration from Rhode Island School of Design. She was an MFA candidate in itaglio printmaking at Washington University when her fabric art, a medium embraced by many feminist artists, began to receive recognition. Winter had a long career as a graphic designer which included Rocky Mountain PBS. She has also held artist-in-residence positions in Oregon, Nebraska and West Virginia. A student of Jungian psychology and mythology, her illustrative style is reminiscent of her grandmother’s turn of the century fairy tale books with which she grew up.
