Explore the art of letterpress printing, the way most text and books were printed from 1550 to 1950. Participants will explore typesetting with metal and wood type and then print the words they set on a hand operated, flat bed cylinder printing press.

She holds a BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a MFA from Book Arts Program at University of Alabama. Her artists’ books are collected in private and public libraries around the country.
