An innovator in photomechanical printmaking and artist's books, Bea Nettles (b. 1946, Gainesville, Florida) uses photographic imagery with a variety of processes, some of which she introduced to the lexicon. She obtained her B.F.A. from the University of Florida, Gainesville (1968), and her M.F.A. from the University of Illinois, Chicago (1970). Nettles has produced some of the most visually exciting work since the early 70's.
