Hand-drawn Letterpress Business Cards

Hand-drawn Letterpress Business Cards

Igloo Letterpress did it again. I needed to order new cards and I wanted to update the design to reflect the focus on my art over the last year. I sent them a challenging line drawing to include and they executed it perfectly.

Opening Up The Studio!

Opening Up The Studio!

Next weekend, September 27th and 28th, I will be opening my studio to the public to share my work and discuss my process. I'll have a collaborative project that visitors can work on with me and seasonal refreshments like apple cider donuts and coffee. Yum.

Artist On Fire: Collages

Artist On Fire: Collages
