Ornament Letterpress

I favor simplicity in all design, and letterpress lends itself perfectly to elegant, ornamental compositions. I appreciate the way the decorative arts elevate everyday objects and I see my patterned cotton paper as an extension of this. Ornament Letterpress was named after one of my favorite books, The Grammar of Ornament, by architect and designer Owen Jones. It is a survey of ornamental design from around the world and observes that all ornamentation is based on natural forms and can stand as its own subject.

I have a studio in my home with a Vandercook Proof Press (circa 1941) and Heidelberg Windmill press. My studio in like a sanctuary for me. I love the smell of ink, oil and paper. I have a large pin board with found objects, clippings, and fabric hung up for inspiration. I love being down there tinkering with the press or mixing ink for a project - its heaven.
