The X in PlatemarkX

I am a printer and book artist creating art under the name PlatemarkX located in the rainy NW corner of Oregon. I studied printmaking in college falling in love with linoleum and wood block printing. After college I focused mainly on linoleum block printing. I then discovered letterpress and promptly fell in love with how it allowed me to print linoleum & wood blocks on a press with type. I started to experiment with the book form as more as a sculpture adding yet more dimension to my art. My work is more than just printing, it is the constant need to push the envelope of print, paper, and the book form and still tell my story.
