What is relief printing?
Relief, or block, printing involves carving into a material (e.g. wood or linoleum) and printing an impression of the carved surface on another material (e.g. paper, fabric). My preferred medium is linoleum (aka linocut).
Is every art print identical?
Each print has very slight variations because they’re individually inked and hand-pulled. So while I aim for consistency, no two prints are exactly alike.
What size are your prints? Will they fit a standard frame?
Unless otherwise indicated, all art prints measure 11x14” and fit a standard-size photo frame (e.g. 11x14” frame by Umbra). The prints also display beautifully in a 16x20” frame, matted to 11x14”, (e.g. KNOPPÄNG by IKEA).
Can you make this print in that size?
Because each block is hand carved (it’s analogue, baby), they cannot be reproduced in a different size.
One of your limited edition prints sold out. Can I still get one?
Buyers of limited edition prints often make a purchase decision based on the fact that the piece is limited. I cannot make a change to the run size as this would be a violation of trust. That said, watch my Instagram regularly for new print releases. I’d also love to hear from you if there's a subject you’d like to see more of!
