Handmade Art Cards
My Process: For each design, I begin with a drawing that I transfer to and carve into a linoleum block. With that black-inked block, I print my design onto textured paper (often rice paper), adding cut-paper shapes and sewing on wire elements that I bend to that accentuate the movement or form of the imagery. I compose all of those elements together onto white, acid-free watercolor paper card stock.
Specs: Each individually handmade 5″ x 7″ art card is intended to be mailed as a card (blank inside) and/or to be enjoyed purely as artwork which may be framed. Each comes with a matching envelope, with a deckle edge on both the card and the envelope flap. You can also find my cards at Abacus in Maine. Holiday Cards, of course, are only available seasonally.
