Resident Artists



Eleanor Simpson, Printmaking


Eleanor Simpson is an artist and printmaker born in Portland, Oregon, and currently based in Jenkintown. Natural light, gestures of the hand, and the materiality of two-dimensional works are some of her biggest inspirations. She is interested in continuing to create work using relief and monotype printing, taking inspiration from each step of the printmaking process and amplifying the natural abstractions that are created in between ink and paper meeting. Eleanor graduated from Arcadia University with a BFA in Printmaking in 2021. She first discovered her love of printmaking at Montgomery County Community College, where she attended classes in high school and her first years of college. She has taught college students printmakingtechniques at a residency program at Arcadia University, and is currently working in the textile industry as a hand-block printmaker at Galbraith & Paul in Philadelphia. Eleanor is excited to further her involvement in the local arts community throughout this residency.

Megan Raab Greenholt, Fabric Arts/Printmaking

Megan Raab Greenholt is a multi-disciplinary artist exploring painting, printmaking, textiles, collage, and sculpture. Vintage, found, and natural objects live in my studio and home. These collections guide my creative expression, and always find a way into my work. Home as place, is represented in the content, materials, and methods I use in traditional and non-traditional forms. Since 2010, I have been producing eco-dyed materials primarily using dyestuffs sourced from my dye garden or locally and sustainably foraged. As a practicing artist and educator, discovery is integral to my practice as I use a process-oriented approach to facilitate an intuitive response to the materials as a means to encourage community engagement and curiosity. I would like to continue my journey developing a body of work that explores my intuitive and process-oriented practive of using naturally dyed materials, hand stitching techniques, and deconstructed screen printing on fabric. I would also like to share this exprerience in a space and location that supports the arts through exhibitions, educational opportunities, and community collaborations.
