Ingeborg Jürgensen Hiscox 


Ingeborg Jürgensen Hiscox  is a master of the wood block print. She manipulates the block in multiple ways to create  unique prints with variations and limited editions that demand an intimate exploration of the imagery. She has illustrated children’s books and created film strips for The National Film Board of Canada productions. She has exhibited nationally and internationally.   Notably, she was commissioned by the Greater Toronto Airport Authority for the Lester B. Pearson International Airport, Toronto to create Skyward (2003).

Like many artists, Hiscox has had a parallel practice as an art educator and illustrator. In addition to teaching art to both children and adults, Hiscox has been a visiting lecturer at various art associations and has served on juries and selection committees throughout the Montreal area.
