Letterpress + Art

letterpress blocks in a drawer

Featured below, you’ll see some art pieces that I’ve made over the past few years.

Printmaking is one of my favorite forms of art (especially drypoints!), but without access to a press, I’ve taken a break from it. More recently, I’ve been focusing my time on letterpress, which combines my love for printmaking with my deep appreciation for typography. I also enjoy painting and am hoping to get back to that after a few freelance projects are wrapped up.

Letterpress + Prints

Ink on Various Papers + Progress Shots
Various Sizes
Summer 2019 – Winter 2021

I rent studio time at a workshop in Scranton, PA, and I go up every few weeks to make new things. For me, letterpress is a method of escapism: I don’t set out with the intention to make anything perfectly, but rather, I want to have fun experimenting and learning from my mistakes.

In 2020, I spent much of my letterpress time making gifts and small commission pieces. The gallery below shows both finished pieces as well as in-progress photos.

In 2021, I bought a small press from Provisional Press. I've been trying to carve out more time to do prints at home! (pun intended)

It's been awhile, but sometimes I like to post stories on my Instagram. Check them out and follow me to see more.
