Blockhead Press

While I love many types of media, I specialize in linocuts – prints made from carved linoleum. I have been carving and hand printing for 20 years – skills taught to me by my father – and this continues to be my favorite creative process. The images I select are often inspired by nature, sugared treats (particularly baked items), and my sense of humor.
All my images begin on linoleum. I work on an image, then transfer it to the linoleum block and start carving – I enjoy drawing and shading with the cutters, so it’s a bit of a surprise what results. From these come the cards, prints and images for the belt buckles. Many of the images also lend themselves to textiles, and for these, I create screens for printing. I also enjoy using various images for large graphic, acrylic paintings.

Cookie & the Dude

From the time I was a little girl all things vibrant, fresh and whimsical have captivated me. I studied fine art from early childhood on thru college.
