Printer Julia D'Amario worked at Pace Editions in New York City for seventeen years, before moving to rural California in 2006. D'Amario first came to the Sitka Center as a resident artist in 1997. She developed a deep connection to Sitka and the Oregon coast and enthusiastically agreed to become involved in developing the print program. Jordan Schnitzer, one of Portland's most prominent print collectors, generously pledged his support for the project and has been funding it since its inception.
