My studio is located in the 1241 Carpenter studio building in Philadelphia. The studio building hosts a variety of artitsts, artisans and small businesses which make it an ideal atmosphere for creatives.
My primary press is a manual-inking Vandercook SP15 for printing linoleum blocks and metal type. The ink is distributed as the press rolls over the bed via hand-cranked rubber rollers.
Built in 1934, this proofing press requires hand-inking with a brayer, and has no grippers to hold the paper, but has a large press bed.
This press is ideal for the pressure and control needed for producing etchings and monopronts.
