About (bio)

Matthew Litteken earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Miami University (of Ohio) in 1995 with concentrations in both painting and ceramics, and his Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Cincinnati at the School of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP) in 2004, with an emphasis in 2-Dimensional arts.  Matthew has coupled his artistic career with his commitment to art education by volunteering both as an instructor for various workshops at the James A. Michener Art Museum in Doylestown, PA and the non-profit gallery The Manifest Gallery in Cincinnati, as well as a Visiting Artist to a variety of universities and non-profit galleries across the United States.

Between his undergraduate and graduate work, Matthew maintained his studio practice and exhibition record while working as a ceramist at the Moravian Pottery and Tile Works, an historic Arts and Crafts Museum located in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.  His job involved all aspects of making tiles, mosaics, and art pottery in the Arts and Crafts tradition, as established by the founder, Henry Mercer.

Matthew’s artwork has been exhibited in 20 solo and over 80 group shows at such venues as Amy Baber Fine Art in Shreveport, LA, the Philadelphia Art Alliance, Purdue University Galleries, Northern Kentucky University, The Artist’s Museum in Washington, D.C., and Marymount Manhattan College in New York City.  In the summer of 2011, Matthew directed a team of 9 young artisans to complete his design of a 29 foot by 25 foot mural in Hamilton, Ohio.  His paintings, prints, and drawings are in private collections across the United States.

Matthew, his wife, and two sons currently reside in the greater Cincinnati area.  He teaches drawing, painting, and 2-Dimensional design at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.
