Printmaking: Letterpress printer


I am a graphic designer turned letterpress artist and have been printing on Lopez Island for 15 years. I work on 19th century presses, drawing from a large library of vintage images and type. I get inspiration from the traditional and historic while keeping an awareness of contemporary culture. My work includes broadsides, booklets, calendars and commissioned announcements.
