About the Artist
I am a printer and bookbinder, and proprietor of the Tight Squeek Press. Regarding my graphic arts work, my primary medium is printmaking, specifically in multi-color block print illustration through relief printing.
My designs begin as sketches and drawings. These I transfer to linoleum and/or end-grain maple blocks into which I carve or engrave my images. Using letterpress equipment, I pull proofs, refine and adjust the images as needed, and then run limited editions of my designs on either commercial or hand-made papers.
My typical projects include limited edition printmaking, fine press book design and illustration, and fine press book production.
