Jonathan Marquardt's Profile
I am an artist and fly fisherman living in Madison, Wisconsin. There is so much to do here and many things to find inspiring. I enjoy painting and fishing on the various rivers and streams near my home. I love trout and you will find a lot of them in my work.
About my process-
My linocuts are images that I carve into wood blocks covered with a sheet of soft linoleum. I draw the desired image in reverse onto the block surface and then use a series of blades to carve the image in relief. Once fully carved, I roll ink over the surface of the block and press paper down onto the block. The result is your piece. Each one is hand made and individual and as such no two are exactly alike, even in "open editions."
Thanks for looking!
