An associate professor of print media and drawing at Cornell University, Page is cofounder of the Ink Shop Printmaking Center/Olive Branch Press in Ithaca, New York. Page's prints explore horticultural documentation allowing the plants to reveal a true expression of themselves reflecting science, location, and sustainability. Page exhibits internationally including at the He Xiangning Art Museum, Shenzhen, China and Gallery Ami & Kanoko, Osaka, Japan. His prints are included in permanent collections such as the Brooklyn Museum of Art in New York; the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Texas; and the Museum of Fine Arts in San Francisco, to name a few.

- ART 2301 Introduction to Print MediaThis is an inclusive course that offers an expanded study of traditional printmaking processes through experimental print media. Print media is a critical practice grounded in the history of all printed matter and the printed form as a social medium. Students will participate in a comprehensive range of technical and aesthetic approaches centered in a range of strategies including the art work as multiple, digital and cultural production. These issues of critical discourse will challenge traditional definitions of intaglio, lithography, relief, screen-printing, digital printmaking, and laser cutting technology.
- ART 3305 The Hybrid PrintPrintmaking's evolving language, a hybrid vocabulary of newly available materials, tools and methods with traditional techniques, is expanding the concept of the printed edition and facilitating new and radical explorations of scale, dimension, content and display. This course encourages students, like many contemporary artists working in print media, to define printmaking in their own terms by stressing traditional and experimental platemaking, digital printing and fabricating, editionable collage and hand-finishing techniques, and strategies for successfully merging these disparate methods into finished prints.Beyond Cornell, this course offers field trips to the Editions/Artist Book Fair, IPCNY Print Fair, and professional print shops and print collection of the Johnson Museum. Depending on the semester this course may involve a collaborative project with a visiting artist.
- ART 3306 The Artist's Book and the Object MultipleThis course examines the Artist's Book and the Object Multiple, which expand the definition of an edition by being 3-dimensional, tactile, and often collaborative or text-based. Students will have the option to produce hand-made objects of various forms (for example, Louise Bourgeois' sewn books), digitally-printed and bound artists' books (such as Amy Sillman's zines), or any combination of the two (or example, Kiki Smith's editioned porcelain sculptures) and have access to digital printers, CNC routers, and various other fabricating machines as well as traditional printing presses. The class will be divided into units focusing on traditional skills in bookmaking, with guest instruction from the Wells Book Arts Center; on mold-making and casting, with emphasis on 3-D fabricating capabilities; and finally on the natures of hand-made multiples versus their machine-made digital cousins.Studio work will be supplemented with a field trip to New York to visit the Artist Book and Object Multiple collection at the MoMA. Depending on the semester this course may involve a collaborative project with visiting artist or pairings-up with writers and poets to produce textual editions.
