Erin Sweeney

more work by Erin Sweeney

Erin Sweeney is an artist living and working in New Hampshire, having just completed her MFA in Book Arts and Printmaking at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She holds a BFA in sculpture from the Maine College of Art in Portland, Maine.

Her current work combines fibers, text, and the book form. She is interested in all forms of building, be it conceptual or physical. Her current work revolves around the concepts and processes of building community. Making handmade objects, manipulating space, and utilizing printmaking processes in non-traditional ways are all a part of Sweeney’s vocabulary.

She continues to show work nationally, most recently at the Hunterdon Art Museum in Clinton, NJ, Donna Seager Gallery in San Rafael, California, and at the Skybox at 2424 Studios in Philadelphia.

Storytellers, Erin Sweeney, The Art of the Book at Donna Seager Gallery


This book by Erin Sweeney involves sewing and coptic binding. We all carry stories in our heads and in our bones. Sweeney uses coptic bound books and muslin handmade dolls to make a physical representation of the way stories are carried.
