Matthew W. Litteken 

A full-time artist living and working in the greater Cincinnati area, he predominately works in the medium of painting, but maintains an increasingly diverse practice that includes mixed-media, printmaking, collage, and wall/floor installations. Matthew earned his BFA from Miami University (of Ohio) in 1995 with concentrations in both painting and ceramics. He went on to complete his MFA with distinctions from the University of Cincinnati at the School of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning in 2004, with an emphasis in two-dimensional studies. Matthew currently teaches drawing, painting, and two-dimensional design at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.
