Printing Forevermore

I left my teaching job several years ago, without a specific goal in mind. With the free time I created for myself, I began engaging with a variety of materials. First, chalk (thanks to my sister sending me a box of colorful sticks in the mail), then crafting sleeves for records, then watercolors, and finally block-printing.

I'm also a DJ and I play soul music 45s. I was involved in making a poster for a soul night several years ago, but didn't know where to start, not having made something so big before. I went to the store and picked up a few tools to start block printing. I enjoy the hands-on process and especially the slight mystery of the inverted image-- similar to the feeling you get when sliding exposed photo paper into the developer solution. It's always a little different (and usually better) than you expect.

My immediate family is made up of artists. I've made things on and off since childhood and am excited to have a more "official" shop up and running!

I live in Minneapolis, where I'm from. Everything is created in my third-floor apartment. My roommate hasn't kicked me out for mess-making yet, so I'll keep working here (and scrubbing ink off the floor as needed).

Thank you so much for looking at my shop! I'm very excited to imagine that the things I make with love in my apartment will be shipped along to bring joy to someone else.

Everything is made by me here in St. Paul. I carve the stamps, ink the brayer, print every piece by hand, tape up the mailers, dream up new ideas, and everything else in between. I hope you can feel the love I put into each item!
