Wolske is the creative director of Red Butte Press and the Book Arts Program in addition to being an assistant librarian/lecturer at the J. Willard Marriott Library on the University of Utah campus. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in studio art from Marian University and a Master of Fine Arts in graphic design from Indiana University.

Prior to joining the University of Utah’s library faculty, Wolske taught typography, graphic design, and letterpress printing at Indiana University’s Herron School of Art and Design, the Center for Book and Paper Arts at Columbia College Chicago, and Hamilton Wood Type and Printing Museum. His work reveals an affinity for handset wood and metal type and incorporates digital tools, computer software and design thinking into a manual workflow that draws heavily on the traditions of letterpress and fine art printmaking.
