My work spans a range of media from prints and book arts, to sculpture and public works. Two degrees in printmaking, over a decade of residencies in artist’s communities/National Parks, and a parallel career teaching art in Title I Public High Schools for over 20 years have nurtured a desire to make my work accessible to a broad range of people, and supportive of the communities that I am part of. By making multiples I am able to spread my own community around, while leaving pieces of Miami in the communities I travel to. I bring Miami wherever I go, and bring other artists home to my friends and colleagues.
Blair works in woodcut and etching, using traditional techniques. Her interest lies with mark-making that is in tune with her material - whether it be copper or wood. The woodcuts are typically monoprints. Her vocabulary includes abstraction, small editions, serial presentation, simplificiation, images emergent from process. Her most frequent subjects are weather and the landscape. The 2017 installation "Salamander Parade" included oversize etchings and is her first figurative work.
