Carve It, Ink It, Print It with Allyn Paperworks

I originally featured this artist on FB for my “Send Card Not Email . . .” feature. I was amazed by the creativity and I do like art that is different with that individualistic twist.

Using hand-carved blocks, Nancy prints each image on her cards and books.

Since the block is inked by hand, each print has lovely variations in coloring.

Her books are extra special. They have a block print and poem or two inside. She only makes 4 of each edition and they are each made individually. No manufacturing using a machine with this artist!

Her art has simple lines, eye-catching colors and interesting subject matter. To see more pieces, explore Allyn Paperworks.
