Annalise Natasha Gratovich lives and works in Austin, Texas. She is the Associate Director of Flatbed Press, a fine art print publisher specializing in oversized works that has been in operation for nearly three decades. Her largest series to date, The Villagers Carrying Things From Home, is comprised of eight 3x5.5 foot hand-dyed chine collé woodcuts. This series is being co-published by Flatbed Press, where the first six may be seen. 

She is on the Board of Directors of PrintAustin, a month-long, city-wide printmaking event for which she has helped organize exhibitions and special events, curate the PrintAustin Invitational, and has participated in artist and curator talks, and panel discussions.

Gratovich has exhibited extensively nationally and internationally and is a sought-after visiting artist and speaker throughout the state of Texas where there is a rich historic and contemporary printmaking movement. Her work is included in numerous publications including Flatbed at 25, a UT Press monograph on the publisher. She has been invited to participate in visiting artist residencies throughout the region and has work in numerous private and public collections, the most recent acquisition going to the Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division.
