I used to live in Nashville, TN and I worked in the music industry there before pursuing my art and teaching career. Hatch Prints was an important part of our advertising connecting the heritage of past musicians with the present. Whenever I think about concerts or other music events, the images of Hatch Prints always comes to mind.

Advertising and the mediums used for advertising can impact our lives in powerful or subtle ways. Artists use prints and the printing medium along with text to convey their conceptual intent as well.
