Greetings from the Northwoods!

January 2023.


But oh well.  For cheery fun we made some totebags!  Good for holding books, extra hats and mittens, and chickadee food!

In the webstore here.

The newest woodcut is Birch in Spring.  It is an echo of the painting in the 2023 Year of Trees calendar for June.

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.

In addition to the hand-printed woodcuts, we have books, cards, calendars, and t-shirts. We are shipping weekly.  Please do browse !
