Announcement   Welcome to Leeside Studio!!

My name is Cas and I live in the upper left corner of WA state with my red headed husband and our wee daughter. I studied art at Chico State University and work as a printmaker from my basement studio. I use linoleum and woodblocks to create hand printed fine art prints and cards.

In block printing, an image is carved away from a rigid material (wood or linoleum), inked with a roller and then pressed onto paper using lots of pressure. None of my prints were made using electronic means: all are handmade using a process that is hundreds of years old.

"Printing" and "prints," before the era of computers and electricity, have been their own art form for centuries. When printing presses were first employed in the mass production of books, the only way a picture could be added to a book was by creating an image on a plate that could have ink applied to it and then smooshed with heavy pressure onto the page. In modern times, each "print" the artist makes is known as a "multiple original." Due to the nature of printmaking, each print will be slightly different and just a little imperfect. This adds to the originality of the piece.

Thanks for stopping by my wee shop and feel free to give me a shout out with any questions!

Cheers
Cas

What a beautiful zine! I really connected with the main message, and I thought the black & white photography that went along fit perfectly.

About

The Ants Go Marching One by One.

I owe my art skills to my mother, who, in an effort to keep me from wriggling around and getting in trouble, placed an endless supply of pens, paper and crayons into my eager little hands. Being a shy child with few friends helped too... no joke, I used to put a Disney movie on, pause it on whatever character I wanted to draw and sit for hours drawing what was on the screen.

Fast forward 20 years. I'm slightly less shy (sort of) but still trying to harness the scents and sounds and lighting strikes of an inward, eager restlessness. After a short but informative stint in Art school, I dropped out figuring art was a word of action that needed to be acted upon and did not have to include insurmountable debt.

The projects you see here are my heart and soul. Each print is a message to the lonely, the confused, the joyful, the quiet. The stationary and journals I make speak of my belief in redemption: that what was once old and torn and too broken to be of value to anyone can be made brand new and purposeful again.

Please enjoy looking around in my shop- it is my pleasure to have you here!
