Cushman is a prolific and technically masterful printmaker and educator, and a co-founder of Columbus’ nationally recognized Phoenix Rising Printmaking Cooperative, where she continues to print, teach and encourage others to learn about and appreciate the medium of printmaking. Her recent work focuses on designs and patterns in nature, and how our presence imposes itself on the environment.
Cushman has traveled extensively around the world. When she is not exhibiting her artwork, she serves as a docent at the Columbus Museum of Art. She’s also received an Ohio Arts Council grant.
Cushman earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Pennsylvania State University and a Master of Arts at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, Massachusetts. She also attended the Slade School of Fine Art at the University College London, England, and the Philadelphia College of Art, now The University of the Arts.
