Daryl V. Storrs

While studying at Middlebury College Daryl discovered printmaking. The creation of handmade multiples appealed to both her artistic and practical sensibilities. After college she read an article about Sabra Field in Vermont Life and it mentioned that Sabra hired an assistant every year. Daryl wrote to her, interviewed, and 6 months later was working in her studio, learning about woodcuts and the business of art. After her apprenticeship, she went to U.

The following year she again juried with Frog Hollow and was accepted.
