A blog about printmaking, children's illustration, and books.

I've been taking photos of the beautiful corner of Colorado where I live for many years. I've also done several sets of abstract photos of ice, water and plants. But recently I wanted to figure out how to combine my handmade prints and drawings with photography. When I photograph something in the world, I bring to the photo my design sense and vision. But I always feel like a cheater because I didn't MAKE the thing I photographed, I was just lucky enough to stumble across it. With these images I photographed my own art- linocuts, stamps, drawings and paintings and combined them using different layers.
