I am a graphic designer and have been teaching typography, graphic design, and book design for nearly a decade. Recently rediscovering the beauty of tones and textures of the letterpress, I opened Lizard Press Letterpress in San Francisco to indulge in my passion.

By combining vintage wood and lead typefaces with digital designs made into polymer plates, I print each limited edition combination on an old-fashion vandercook proof press, each one pulled by hand, from a single run on the press to as many as eight, depending on project requirements.

My projects vary from rocking CD sleeves, inspiring broadsides, typographic greeting cards and intuitive artists books. Each project is printed in a limited design, in editions of 30 to 65 for artist books; 30 to 150 for broadsides; and 50 to 200 for greeting cards and envelopes.

I am currently inspired by signage, the sea, circles, wood type, recycling, trees, and peace.

RECYCLING: I'm all about recycling, projects are either on recycled paper, reused paper, found paper, or tree-free paper!

PRINTING: Please note that while I seek to maintain consistency, letterpress process is a handmade one and may vary slightly from print to print, and from samples or your screen images.
