At the beginning of 2020, I had no real knowledge of what relief printmaking or linocuts were. During my 3rd semester of college, I was lucky enough to have Courtney Dicmas as an instructor for an illustration class. In that class, Courtney taught us what relief printing was and how to create a relief print. As someone who likes to get dirty, I instantly fell in love with the art form and haven't looked back. I have since started an Etsy shop, Carve and Press, and I continue to explore new printing techniques and carving styles. Linocuts have become a passion of mine and is a great for calming my mind and creating peace.
