Inge Bruggeman lives in Portland, Oregon where she is a faculty member at the Oregon College of Art & Craft. She teaches in the Book Arts, General Studies and Fibers Departments. In her studio, Inge publishes limited edition, fine press artist’s books under her imprint INK-A! Press and she makes a variety of text based artwork from wall pieces to installations. This work generally investigates the book as cultural icon and artifact and our shifting relationships to text, print media, and the book object. From 2000-2010, Inge was proprietor of Textura, a letterpress and book arts master studio where she collaborated with artists and designers on a variety of artist book and print projects. She frequently travels nationally and internationally to give lectures and workshops in the fields of print and artists’ books. Inge has a particular interest in research and artists’ books in France.  Her work is shown and collected internationally.
