We are a small family-based printmaking operation in a scenic little coastal town in northern Minnesota.

We make woodblock prints by hand, pictures of recognizable scenes mostly from the northwoods. Many of these appear as illustrations in books for children and adults.

The printmaking studio and gallery is housed in a historic church, selling the current editions of hand-printed woodcuts, as well as the work of local and regional artists.

The web store is open all year.

Winter Studio hours are listed under "News and Events," (right).
