About

Over a decade of experience, sharing my geeky love of printmaking

I learned how to use a letterpress in a community print shop in close quarters with my fellow printers, with a wobbly table, faulty blinds, and... I loved it. I started selling my prints at a time when other crafty people in my area were just beginning to organize community craft sales and bazaars. Since then, I’ve paused here and there to take some time to enjoy being a mama, raise some chickens, and cultivate a home.

What I love about printmaking is being a part of every process. I was never going to be content sitting in one place, and I need to know the how and why and nuts and bolts of the things I do. There is also an element of mystery that creeps in, no matter your expertise. It’s about finding a balance between the beauty of imperfections and the precision of controlling little details. I consider my shop a success if it inspires others to pause a moment to take a look at the very small things, flawed or perfectly registered, and put on a Shangri-Las album — because chances are, that’s what I was listening to when I rolled out the ink.

Please check individual item descriptions, some things in my shop are one of a kind and cannot be replaced! If I can replace an item, I am happy to, otherwise again, I'm willing to come up with something on an individual basis. I handled returns at my "other" job, so I know that things can happen. Thanks for your understanding.
