The Studio IS Open for visitors!
The last few years have been hard and I’ve been slowly getting things back up and running in the studio. Before the pandemic I had partnered with Jane from Atelier Meridian, a fantastic print studio in North Portland. We put together a list of dates for letterpress workshop and then – Bam! the pandemic hit and everything was put on hold. But now we are back and doing workshops again! New workshops and events are now posted. Check out her website for lots of amazing printmaking events and workshops at Atelier Meridian.

As some of you know, part of my work is custom projects that people have asked me to do for them. The latest one that I just finished is for a friend of mine, Pat Matsueda. We met online a few years ago when she first had me do a small print job of custom cards for her. So I was excited and honored when she approached me again for another letterpress project. This time it was for a limited edition broadside of her poem, The Hold. The broadside is all hand-set type printed in two colors of a small edition of only 50 signed and numbered, where 40 of those prints will go to the first forty people who purchase her latest book, Bitter Angels available to purchase at Lulu.com and Amazon. She is an amazing person and a fantastic artist and writer. Check out her website at: someperfectfuture.com.
