I recently reintroduced block printing in my artistic practice. Carving into linoleum is in between drawing, sculpting and painting. I enjoy the handmade process and with this technique I am part of it from the carving to the printing.


I also have a passion for silver, recycled leather, exotic wood and hand crafted leather. See my jewelry at www.juliehandmain.etsy.com
