Ardeth has an M.F.A. from the University of Pennsylvania and has worked for the Ban Chiang Project since 1990, first as a work-study student illustrating the beautiful Ban Chiang ceramics, then burials, site plans, and excavation sections. After graduating, she continued working as an illustrator for the Ban Chiang Project and helped design and produce the project’s annual fund-raising newsletter. She prepared graphics, such as maps, page layouts, artist reconstructions, and illustrations for the Ban Chiang Metallurgy monograph (now back from peer review).
