About

A printmaker without a press, I have returned to my first love of drawing and created a studio titled "pencilpress"

A little bit about myself: I have been drawing since I was a kid and completed my education with a BFA from the University of Montevallo. My concentration was in Printmaking and Sculpture (and just a few classes shy of Painting as well). However, I am currently a printmaker without a press so I have returned to my first love of drawing and have created a studio titled "pencilpress".

Using animals as my primary subject matter can be tricky. I try to find a balance between straightforward representation and having a sense of humor about myself and my work. My goal is for the subjects to bell well represented, funny when intended, and always portrayed in an interesting way.

Since 2011, I have exhibited in Alabama's art festivals; Art on R Mountain, ArtWalk, Magic City Art Connection, and Moss Rock Art Festival. Craft fairs have included Avondale's Holiday Craft Bazaar, Bottletree Flea, and 2nd Ave North's 2nd Saturday Sale. My work can be found year round in "Serge", a boutique in Orbit Salon, located in the historic Southside neighborhood of Birmingham, Alabama.

In 2012 I was awarded third place at "Art on R Mountain" and in 2013 I won second place in Avondale's Holiday Craft Bazaar. 2013 also brought the honor of being picked as the first ever featured poster artist for Moss Rock Art Festival.

Commissions always welcome, just ask!

Thanks so much for visiting my shop!!

Welcome to PENCILPRESS, artwork by Susan Shoemaker, est 2011

Every work on paper, canvas block, or wood has been drawn & painted by me. Some of my pieces do also include a photo transfer where I have manipulated an image, transfered it onto material, and hand painted the rest.

While all of the artwork has been made by me, I have used individually owned screen shops to print my shirts & tote bags for me. A local graphic arts company was able to scan some of my larger pieces and make affordable reproduction prints for me as well.

I am always available to answer any questions -please feel free to contact me :)

Refunds and Exchanges
If you are unhappy with your order please message me and we will come up with a solution that works for both of us.

If it is simply a matter of switching out a shirt size, I will be happy to exchange any unworn, unwashed clothing (minus shipping). Please refer to the shirt size charts or message me with any questions.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders are always available -just ask! I have done several commissioned portraits of pets (& now starting to do children's portraits) and am always up for a challenge. I work from photographs provided by the client, and we discuss the size, colors involved, and general pose/crop of the subject. A deposit of half of the agreed cost of the piece is required to start the work, and I will send you emails showing the progression of the piece. I can usually have the piece completed within three months, but that is subject to change at any time.
