T. Klacsmann captures the consciousness of animals as they exist independently from, but intermingled with humanity. Loving beauty more than efficiency, they meticulously carve each thing that appears in their work in linoleum or wood. Some of the resulting relief prints are further developed with paint, ink, and colored pencil; other prints are scanned and turned into polyester lithography plates, printed and combined with relief prints to create multi-layered works on paper featuring animals in naturalistic settings altered by humanity.
Klacsmann is a member of the Society of American Graphic Artists (SAGA). Their work has been shown nationally and internationally and is included in the permanent collections of the Albany Institute of History and Art, The Smith College Museum of Art, the flat files and archives of Zea Mays Printmaking, and the Miriam Shapiro Archives at Rutgers University. In 2014, they received the Medal of Honor in Mixed Media and Walinska Memorial Award from the National Association of Women Artists (NAWA).
They completed certificates in Green Printmaking at Zea Mays Printmaking, and Graphics and Animation at University of North Georgia; an MFA at Northern Vermont University; a Masters of Art History at the University of Glasgow, and a BA at Yale University.
