Handmade Cards

Cards and matching envelopes: white, acid-free watercolor paper with deckle edge on card and envelope flap.

For each of these card designs, I begin with a drawing that I transfer to and carve into a linoleum block. From that block, I create a print on textured paper. I then add cut paper shapes and sew-on wire elements that I bend in ways that I feel reinforce the movement or form of the image. All of those elements are joined together on a watercolor paper card stock. Each is individually hand-crafted and intended for use as a card or may be framed and enjoyed as artwork.

My cards may be purchased in Maine at Abacus or directly from me. My Holiday Cards, of course, are only available seasonally.
