Natural Inspiration

I graduated with a B.F.A. in Printmaking from Northern Illinois University in 2010 and have been a self-employed artist ever since. In the past I've printed my hand carved woodblock prints on an old Conrad Dickerson Machine Press out at my in-laws' farm - great for saving my hands from having to rub each print with the back of a wooden spoon, but I currently print by hand with a baren. My studio takes up a large portion of my basement at my home in Rockford, IL. I draw and carve all my woodblocks there and even print my cards there with a small metal hand press.

The original owner of the farm where my father-in-law’s printing press is located was from the early 1800s and he was one of the first settlers in the area and a prominent figure in the local community. His name was Lemuel Fisk. The farm is out in the country, away from the busyness of the city. Some of the plants in my prints are inspired by native prairie plants that I've been able to find in the back wild field at the farm. Connecting my business name to the original owner of the farm, with a little feminine flare to it, allows that peacefulness to be communicated through my work. When you hang my prints on your wall or send one of my greeting cards, they will bring a little bit of that natural-space and peaceful feeling to your home and to your correspondences. Enjoy!
