Crosland grew up in south west florida and found inspiration to draw as a young creative. His affinity with the outdoors often led to meditative moments of solitude within nature. This relationship with nature grew and became the catalyst behind his printmaking craft. The notion of reflective and balanced mediations can be seen in the compositions manifested through his print work. Crosland finds satisfaction in the printing process as it transcends into ritual in honor of the image created and what incited it. Marrying this school of thought and studio practice cultivates a praxis he strives to sustain through his work.
Crosland studied under master printers Bradlee Shanks and Tim Baker at the University of South Florida & sistering Graphic Studio Institute for Research in Arts and received his BFA in 2017.
