I was introduced to printmaking as an undergrad at Central Michigan University fifteen years ago-- I switched my major and have been in love ever since. I have worked exclusively in screen printing for the last five years, but I also have experience in relief, intaglio, lithography and letterpress.
I founded All Things Grow in 2008 and have since designed, printed and sold thousands of prints based on the intersection of nature, folk design, and vintage style illustration. I am drawn to the way printmaking democratizes original work and makes it accessible and simple to collect and share. I sell prints through retail partners, the online shop and at indie art & craft fairs. In 2010 I co-founded one such fair in my quirky little town called DIYpsi. We host around 75 regional vendors twice each year for a crowd of loyal local shoppers.
I work in a basement studio just under my home near Ypsilanti's Depot Town District with assistance from a woodworker husband, a handful of creative neighbors, and a cuddly cat.
