When I moved into my studio a year and a half ago, I didn’t even having mailing tubes. Who knew people would be walking in wanting to plunk down a credit card and go home with a print? Believe it or not, it didn’t occur to me.
In recent months I’ve continued to carve new rubber stamp designs. These little Amsterdam style houses have become a favorite subject of mine for carving and printing.
I was in the mood for creative experimentation of the non-digital sort. I pulled out the Moo Carve rubber I purchased over the winter and drew a quick design…
The never-ending snowstorms here in Boston were good for my productivity. It was difficult to get around—as a result, I didn’t go out much and longer stretches of my time went into art making. Here’s a quick look at what I’ve been up to.
Most of my art is created with the use of an electronic pen and pad and a computer monitor, and although it’s still hand drawing and I do love that medium, I had an itch for something more tactile. Plus, I just love the look of wood cut and linocut printing and of rubber cut stamps.
