Hand printed etchings and hand made etched objects, made here in Philadelphia.

Seeking an affordable place to print after college, without success, my former classmate and I started our own community printshop, BYO Print. Here, I have my studio and produce all of the handmade work in the shop. Eleven other artists make their work here too.

I'm inspired by quirky childhood memories, obnoxious contradictions in politics and religion, and everything ridiculous in between. While ideas are very important, I also love getting lost in the tedium of making etchings.

I co-run a printmaking studio in Philadelphia, where the prints and jewelry listed in my shop are created.

Much of the jewelry is assembled or modified from vintage deadstock parts, or disassembled things. I've been re-using and recycling since I was a toddler, and I don't plan to stop.

If you're in Philadelphia, come check out my studio, BYO Print, every first Friday of the month, in Fishtown!
