Liv is amazing, and this bee is now buzzing on the lapel of my favorite coat. Great!
Xylographilia is a combination of the word "xylograph" (literally "wood-writing") and the suffix "-philia" (meaning "love"), translates to "the love of woodcut" and was coined to capture the nature of the merchandise sold here. In addition to hand-pulled woodcut prints, you'll also find authentic wood veneer postcards and bookmarks, and other items featuring my art. Most of my subject matter is influenced by historic styles of printmaking, imagery drawn from folklore, dreams, and esoteric traditions.
My printmaking process blends traditional and modern tools with European and Japanese techniques, and every one of my fine art prints is printed by hand in small editions on cotton-rag paper or animal parchment. Although my woodcut process is always being refined, precision and technical control are constants. The main challenge is to adhere to these values while still leaving room for a certain amount of spontaneity.
Liv Rainey-Smith specializes in hand-pulled xylographic prints. Her imagery draws primarily upon historic styles, folklore, dreams, and esoteric traditions. Rainey-Smith completed her BFA at the Oregon College of Art of Craft in 2008.
